Cambridge English combines the experience and expertise of Cambridge English Language Assessment and Cambridge University Press.

Issue 54 focuses on three pieces of work produced for the third round of the Cambridge English Funded Research Programme.
As well as submitting papers to refereed academic journals and making presentations at conferences, seminars and symposia, we share the latest findings of our research with the wider language assessment community through our own publications.
Studies in Language Testing (SiLT) is a series of academic volumes – edited by Dr Michael Milanovic and Prof Cyril Weir, and published jointly by Cambridge English Language Assessment and Cambridge University Press. The series examines important issues and new developments in language testing that are relevant to test users, developers and researchers.
English Profile is a collaborative programme designed to enhance the learning, teaching and assessment of English worldwide. Its aim is to create a ‘profile’ or set of Reference Level Descriptions for English linked to the Common European Framework (CEFR). These volumes summarise the latest research from the programme.
Research Notes is published quarterly, and reports on matters relating to research, test development and validation within Cambridge English Language Assessment.
Each year, members of the research team deliver papers to conferences all over the world. Reports of many of the conferences and other events attended by Cambridge English Language Assessment staff are included in Research Notes.
Cambridge Research Update is a newsletter summarising the latest research about language learning and testing from the Cambridge English Language Assessment Research and Validation team. It features work published in our own titles such as Research Notes and Studies in Language Testing, but also research in independent publications, and work from non-Cambridge English Language Assessment staff which reflects on our examinations and other services we provide.
Grade statistics give the average percentages in each grade for all sessions of a particular exam by country or territory. This information helps researchers understand how our exams perform and is helpful to teachers who want to understand how students perform in a test in their country or region.
