It is widely assumed that proficiency is the goal of language learning and teaching, as is suggested, for example, by the title of the Cambridge ‘Certificate of Proficiency in English’ (CPE), now known as ‘Cambridge English: Proficiency’, with its history of over a hundred years (Weir, Vidakovic, and Galaczi ).

Abstract. This chapter mainly discusses the concepts of construct, validity and validation. First, different views of construct are presented. Then the chapter focuses on the concept of validity and various theoretical underpinnings of test validation, including Messick’s validation framework, Kane’s interpretive argument framework, Bachman and Palmer’s assessment use argument (AUA for An outline is provided of the contents and boundaries of three areas of competence, or systems of knowledge, that are to be minimally included in a theory of communicative competence: grammatical competence, sociolinguistic competence, and strategic competence.
