Project Overview: 

The goal of this project is to train language instructors to use a corpus-based assessment tool to track and benchmark language development of individual students (e.g. learners in a class) or groups of students (e.g. different classes or sections in a course). The tool, the Graphic Online Language Diagnostic (GOLD), which was developed by CALPER earlier, allows for a fine-grained diagnostic assessment of learner language.
