As elucidated by Purpura and Turner in their presentation at the Teachers College Columbia University Round Table in Second Language Studies (TCCRISLS) 2014 conference, languageoriented assessment (LOA) emphasizes the centrality of learning when the interrelatedness between instruction, assessment, and learning are examined.
