Involved as we are in professional development, I would like to pass on this request from a PhD student I know who needs some help finding English teachers to take part in his research. It will take between 30 and 60 minutes of your time and you will be thanked with an Amazon voucher worth GBP 15 if you complete the surveys. Please note, you need to be teachers learners of age 12+ to participate. Here is the request:

Glyn Jones is a PhD student at Lancaster University. For his PhD he is conducting a study which replicates part of the research that led to the calibration of the Common European Framework (CEFR) descriptors.

Glyn is looking for teachers to participate in the study. ·The study is open to teachers of English currently teaching at any level and in any setting except Young Learners, anywhere in the world. · Participants are asked to

  • assess two of their students using online surveys,
  • assess some samples of student writing in the same way. ·

Most participants complete the surveys in 30 – 60 minutes. An Amazon voucher worth GBP 15.00 is offered to those who complete all 3 of Glyn’s data collection surveys. For more information and to register to participate please visit Glyn’s website at 

Thanks in advance if you can help.
