Resources for researchers

IRIS

Website: www.iris-database.org

IRIS is a free, digital repository of materials used to collect data for research into second language learning and teaching.

Since the site went live in January 2012, over 800 instruments, used to collect data for a range of L2 research, have been uploaded. These instruments are all downloadable and can be easily used or adapted for teacher-led research in the language classroom. IRIS is funded by the British Academy and the ESRC, and supported by a wide international network of journal editors and research and teaching associations.
