Computerized Dynamic Assessment of Language Proficiency (CODA)

CODA is an online formative assessment tool designed to provide more fine-grained profiles of listening and reading comprehension abilities than possible with traditional tests by offering graduated assistance to student test-takers. This allows teachers not only to observe how many test questions learners answered correctly and incorrectly on the first try but also to document how much support was required by the student test-taker to complete the assessment. Test results are provided as unweighted and weighted scores for the class as well as for individual students. The tests are based on existing and recognized multiple-choice assessments of listening and reading comprehension.
