Computer Aided Tests.
Steinke, Elisabeth
An approach to using the computer to assemble German tests is described. The purposes of the system would be: (1) an expansion of the bilingual lexical memory bank to list and store idioms of all degrees of difficulty, with frequency data and with complete and sophisticated retrieval possibility for assembly; (2) the creation of an item-synthesizing center similar to the analyzing center which permit the computer to take apart the German input; (3) the inclusion of statistical data, such as deltas, biserials, percentages, etc.; (4) to determine actual frequency of words as they occur in input; (5) to assemble vertical tests as well as parallel-horizontal tests; and (6) to enable the professional test-production staff to concentrate their efforts on activities that are not likely to be performed by a computer, such as reviewing material, finding appropriate texts, writing questions for passages, etc. "COMIT as and IR Language" by Victor H. Yngve is discussed briefly, and a sample machine translation from "An Introduction to Machine Translation" by Emile Delavenay is reproduced. (DB)
