Abstract

Content analysis studies have become popular in Turkey. Different content analysis studies have been made on different aspects of English language teaching in Turkey, but they have not focused on the graduate research on English language assessment and evaluation in Turkey. Therefore, the present study aimed to review the graduate studies on English language assessment and evaluation in Turkey. It was designed as a descriptive content analysis study. The number of the graduate studies conducted by Turkish researchers on English language assessment and evaluation that were contentanalyzed in the present study was 248. The findings of the present study indicated that English language assessment and evaluation was studied more in the M.A. theses than it was in the Ph.D. dissertation. They also showed that the number of the graduate studies on English language assessment and evaluation fluctuated between 2010 and 2015, though it increased steadily between 2016 and 2019. It was also found that the feedback was the most commonly studied research topic, while listening assessment and performance assessment were among the least commonly researched topics. The findings were discussed, and the suggestions for further studies were made.
