The emergence of world Englishes (WE) has revolutionized the way scholars and linguists view the English language. Before Kachru introduced the concentric circles model of WE, there were only two varieties of English that were widely accepted in the world, namely, American English (AmE) and British English—both of which fall in the category of Inner Circle Englishes. Despite having its own linguistic norms, PhE is yet to be recognized and accepted in the discipline of language assessment. This chapter argues that language assessment in the Philippines must be WE paradigm-informed. The resistance to include appropriate linguistic norms is one of the issues in testing WE. Despite the fact that the variety of English being used in Philippine classrooms is PhE, the assessment tasks and standards taught are still those of AmE.
