Computerized Oral Proficiency Instrument (COPI) Test Administration Project

The Computerized Oral Proficiency Instrument (COPI) is a computer-based, semi-adaptive test of oral proficiency intended for use with high school upperclassmen, college students, and professionals. It provides language educators with a computerized, time-efficient assessment of their native-English-speaking students’ oral language proficiency in Arabic or Spanish.

CAL has recently operationalized the Arabic and Spanish versions of the COPI, which involved making the tests available on CD-ROM, developing a CD-ROM-based COPI rater training course for each language, and developing a COPI module to enhance an existing online distance learning course for rater training.
