Testing 4-skills online: What is possible?
Presentation abstract
Whilst there are numerous online tools to test and assess the receptive skills of reading and listening, it is only recently that tools have been developed to assess the production skills of writing and speaking online. Internationally-recognized tests, including TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS and Eiken, are all available online nowadays and most include speaking and writing sections. However, the use of human assessors means that the fees for taking these tests are high, and furthermore it takes several weeks the obtain results. To overcome these issues, a new open-source test is proposed that is based around the Moodle LMS. The test features several new plugins to automatically grade speaking and writing. The presenter will detail the development of the plugins, reveal the preliminary version of the test, and explain how the reliability of the test is verified by comparing students' scores with human-ratings and widely used tests.
