After publication of this article (Gan and Lam, 2020), it is noticed the below two errors occurred in the article:

  1. 1)

    In table 2, the percentage of ‘Training received’ for ‘Productive skills (writing/speaking)’ should be ‘64.7, 29.4 and 5.8’ rather than ‘64.7, 29.4 and 5.’

  2. 2)

    The first sentence in the third paragraph of ‘Conclusion’ section is incomplete, the correct sentence should be: First of all, the university administrators and department heads should be mindful of their instructors’ assessment practices, prioritize assessment training for the in-service instructors, and provide more opportunities and financial support for them to receive assessment training to keep updated in language testing and assessment.

Item 2 has been updated in the original article.
