The editors are delighted to announce a special edition of the Journal of Research in Applied Linguistics (indexed in JCR-ESCI and Scopus, among others). The general topic of this volume revolves around language teaching feedback and assessment, with a special focus on the role played by digital technologies and methodological innovations in the development of state-of-the-art models dedicated to those essential educational tasks. Recent times have seen a proliferation of online and blended L2 and LSP courses requiring feedback and assessment tools that can be integrated into such courses. This volume aims to be a valuable contribution in this sense and provide insights on the various ways in which technology can help enhance the effects of feedback and assessment in language teaching contexts and the affordances brought about by the technological enablement of these practices.

The special issue welcomes both high-quality theoretical papers and experimental full-research papers driven by data in any language. Contributors are encouraged to submit original proposals on relevant topics, taking the following guidelines and deadlines into serious consideration.
