ISCA International Workshop on Speech and Language Technology in Education (SLaTE 2011)
We introduce a Web-based CALL architecture that facilitates
the construction of learner-customized multiple choice tests in a
cross-lingual tandem language learning environment. Mistakes
made by the learner are manually corrected and classified by his
tandem partner, who acts as a tutor. If the learner has problems
to identify and correct his mistakes, or if he likes to practice, he
can generate two kinds of tests that are automatically produced
on the basis of the tutors error classifications. We describe the
NLP components behind our test generator, give a preliminary
evaluation of the quality of the generated tests, and present the
current state of our Web application.
