Ms. Gwendydd Caudwell is Aptis Product Development Manager for the British Council based in Dubai. In 2009 she took the Roehampton Theory and Practice of Language Testing course as a means to understand the rationale behind some of the tests she was using with her students in her teaching career.
This sparked her interest in this area and she completed her MA in Language Testing with Lancaster University in 2012. Gwendydd has extensive experience in teaching, teacher training and management for the British Council around the world.
She is responsible for the research and design of new variants of Aptis and British Council tests and has also worked on designing and implementing tests in different contexts such as the Science Olympiad Foundation in India and a Young Learner test for a large project in Uruguay. Her particular areas of interest are rater judgements and Young Learner assessment and is looking to base her PhD on this topic.
