Dear Fellow Graduate Students,

I hope you have had a chance to read over the MwALT mission statement, as it addresses issues of interest to graduate students like ourselves. As your graduate student representative, I want to inform you about ways in which MwALT can benefit you.  MwALT provides us with an excellent opportunity to 1) interact with professionals in the language and assessment field, and 2) broaden our knowledge and expertise in various areas of language testing. In addition, through participation in the organization, we have access to hands-on experience working on language testing issues in universities, public schools, and other educational language settings. We can contribute to the field and grow as researchers and practitioners at the same time!

One important way that we can benefit from MwALT is through networking with each other. A great place to do this is at our annual conference.  Consider attending, presenting your work, and meeting other like-minded students and faculty who are interested in language assessment. 

As your representative, I am looking for your feedback regarding ways in which MwALT can better serve you during your graduate student years. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any ideas or suggestions (conference activities, ideas related to a publication for MwALT, etc.).

Please join me in spreading the word about MwALT and encouraging other graduate students to get connected.  I hope to meet you at the conference at Purdue in 2016.

Sincerely,

Dan Isbell
