Toward Implementing Computer-Assisted Foreign Language Assessment in the Official Spanish University Entrance Examination
Sanz, Ana Gimeno; Pavón, Ana Sevilla, Paper presented at the 2015 EUROCALL Conference (22nd, Padova, Italy, Aug 26-29, 2015)
In 2008 the Spanish Government announced the inclusion of an oral section in the foreign language exam of the National University Entrance Examination during the year 2012 (Royal Decree 1892/2008, of 14 November 2008, Ministerio de Educación, Gobierno de España, 2008). Still awaiting the implementation of these changes, and in an attempt to offer the Government a cost-effective technological solution, the CAMILLE Research Group at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia set about creating an online language examination platform complying with the official examination parameters based on the "InGenio" Learning Management System. Once the system had been created, the researchers implemented several test exams and conducted a pilot study with 183 high school students. The quantitative analysis of the study shed light on the learners' attitudes toward using such a system in the context of a high stakes examination.
