Message 1: Russian Test of Language Proficiency

Date: Wed, 11 Jun 2003 11:18:51 +0000
From: Jim Bauman <jimcal.org>
Subject: Russian Test of Language Proficiency

The Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) is developing an innovative
web based test of Russian reading and listening proficiency which will
be ready for field testing in the fall of 2003. We would like to
extend an invitation to schools offering Russian language classes to
participate in the field test. The test is delivered over the Internet
using a secure browser that your institution must download onto the
computers at which students will take the test. These computers must
be PCs (sorry, not Macs) with connections to the Internet. Another
requirement would be for the institution to provide a proctor for the
test to assure security and field questions. Test responses are fed
back to CAL's server so there is no burden on the institution to
prepare and package the responses. If you are interested in
participating, please contact Jim Bauman at jimcal.org for further
information or check the Webtest project web site at
http://www.cal.org/projects/webtest. We look forward to hearing from
you.
