The IELTS partners (British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge Assessment English) are pleased to announce that the winner of the Caroline Clapham IELTS Masters Award 2020 is Alina Carastoian Reid. Her dissertation entitled ‘Cognitive Authenticity and Cognitive Complexity in Multi-text Integrated Reading-into-writing Summary Tasks’ was completed at Lancaster University, and supervised by Tineke Brunfaut.
The award is given annually to the Master's-level dissertation or thesis in English that makes the most significant contribution to the field of language testing. The work should be language testing focused but need not be IELTS-related. The award carries a prize of £1,000. The call for applications for the next round will open in the coming months.
