I am an Arabic lecturer from Indonesia who intend to compose a proficiency test to measure my students' Arabic competencies. In this case, I consider to copy the format of TOEFL for English proficiency test. The challenge is, I have difficulties finding any native Arabic recording for that kind of test. Is there any Arabic listening assessment format which resembles TOEFL?
Thank you very much! I really appreciate each word you give as the responses of my question.

Dear fellow researchers,
I'm trying to locate recent methodological debates on doing research in the Arab region. I have found a Symposia on the topic in Political Science & Politics (39:3), various useful publications by POMEPS, and a report of a workshop held in Edinburgh by Suleiman and Anderson (2008). Can anyone recommend any other publications? Ideally some of these would be located outside American/British academic circles.
Thank you!

I want to do some research on comparative Arabic dialectology. Can anyone recommend grammatical descriptions of varieties of Arabic?
They can be from any time, any place and basically in any language.
The best would be grammatical descriptions or scetch grammar, but also articles or theses focusing on specific grammatical topics.
Fire away!

Dear colleagues! We know that the two ideologies are very similar (pan-Arab nationalism, socialist ideas). Yet I have read that Baathism was more radical, more left, since it did not confine itself to the agrarian reform, but aimed at creating an overwhelming state sector in industry. But I can object to this, pointing out that the share of that sector in Egypt under 'Abd-un-Nasir reached 85%. Does the difference boil down to the simple fact that Nasserism centred on a certain leader, while Baathism did not? And that Nasserism centred on Egypt, while Baathism "was divided" between Syria and Iraq? Or were there indeed any serious socio-economic differences in the programmes?
Relevant answer
Answer
In addition to what Dr. Grover mentioned above, opposition to Israel was one the main goals of Nasserite Arab Nationalism. Further, Nasserism was mainly in Egypt and Syria but Baath party has different national permutations. With respect to nationalism, Baathism might have a stronger nationalist component than Nasserism.

There is a wrapper program available from CPAN or Sourceforge called "SenseClusters" which does text disambiguation where words have the same form but different meanings.  In order to use it with Arabic, you may have to convert your text to a roman alphabet.
