In a 1994 article (People and Place, vol. 2, no. 2) Hawthorne outlined the evolution of English language resting as a significant instrument of Australian immigration policy. The current article explores the development and ramifications of language testing since 1992 for the selection intending skilled migrants at Australian overseas posts. A forthcoming article will analyse language testing in relation to the assessment of Class 816 asylum seekers from the People's Republic of China. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
