Abstract

In the first part of my presentation, I will discuss some basic issues on the structure and acquisition of sign languages, before I turn to key concepts in language testing, followed by current methodological issues in the development of sign language tests – independent of a test’s target group (L1: e.g., deaf children; L2: e.g., adult L2 learners). In the second part of my presentation, I will look at the consequences of test development for test administrators/raters and test takers and demonstrate in the third and final part concrete examples of computer-/mobile assisted sign language tests.
