Subject: Arabic Language Proficiency Test

The Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) is currently conducting field
testing of an innovative web based test of Arabic reading and
listening proficiency. We would like to extend an invitation to
schools offering Arabic language classes this summer 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 for further information or check the Webtest
project web site at We look
forward to hearing from you.
