Voxy, an English-language-learning company, has developed a custom, in-house proficiency exam, the Voxy Proficiency Assessment (VPA), which is given to all learners at the beginning and end of their courses. Using Multinomial Logistic Regression (MLR), the impact of covariates, such as total learning activities completed and total number of resource types, on the likelihood of Voxy users showing a gain, maintenance, or loss in proficiency after twelve weeks of software use, was explored. Relevance of these findings for the design of online language learning activities as well as implications for assessment-related research within the L2 online learning environment will be discussed.
