||The innovative nature of this paper is the way in which it deals with the intersection of three areas: language teaching, literature, and testing. It is the first paper on this topic since Carter and Long (1990), Spiro (1991) and Parkinson and Reid Thomas (2000). It stresses the importance of washback in the design of literature and language tests, thus bringing in an increasingly important concept in language testing. It provides a list of principles for testing literature and language and exemplifies these principles with tasks for testing.
