text

In order to assess spoken skills of learners of Japanese effectively and more efficiently the Institute for DECODE (Institute for Digital Enhancement of Cognitive Development) at Waseda University is collaborating with Ordinate Corporation to develop and validate an automated test of spoken Japanese, SJT (Spoken Japanese Test). The SJT is intended to measure a test-taker’s facility in spoken Japanese, that is listening and speaking skills in daily conversation, in a quick, accurate and reliable manner. In this paper, we discuss the purposes for developing the SJT, the mechanism of a fully automated test, and the test development processes, including item development and implementation.
