Creating a test to adequately assess reading, speaking, listening, and writing proficiency in a foreign language has many challenges. Traditionally, such tests have been paper-based or done by an evaluator in a face-to-face mode. The increasing use of technology in language education has recently shifted the way assessment can be performed. This 25-minute live presentation will develop the concept of Computer Adaptive Language Tests (CALT). The definition and characteristics of an effective CALT will be presented alongside an evaluation of currently available CALT platforms. Finally, advantages and challenges of such language assessment option will be discussed. The audience will have the opportunity to participate by providing input in the Chat and the presenter will provide an opportunity for Q & A at the end of the presentation.
