Description: In this workshop, we will write test items for intermediate tests based on the framework for our on-line oral proficiency test, CAST. We will also configure a course on our Moodle classroom management system so that the test items can be administered immediately to students with the use of audio recording software. We will rate responses from previous tests along the dimensions of fluency, discourse and accuracy. Finally we will create a learner corpus for analysis and integration of test results into the curriculum.
