Some Reflections on Washback

Qi Luxia  
Scholars differ about whether tests are a good instrument for improving teaching and learning,although they are often used for this purpose.An examination of the origin of test washback and relevant empirical studies leads to a conclusion that tests are a blunt instrument for promoting reforms in teaching.This is mainly because testing and teaching possess different characteristics and serve different functions.It is thus highly desirable to carry out further research on the impact of testing and tests on teaching and learning.
