It is carefully managed to attempt to treat all test takers fairly and consistently as they work their way through the test; it is artificial in the sense that a test is contrived to reflect as faithfully as possible features of actual language use so that the test performance can be interpreted as evidence of how the test taker might perform in real life. As Carroll defined it nearly 40 years ago, a test is “a procedure designed to elicit certain behavior from which one can make inferences about certain [examinee] characteristics” (Carroll, 1968, p.

Presenting test tasks that reflect the variety and complexity of language in communicative use is thus a constant challenge for language test developers. CALT offers test developers new options for presenting input material in a variety of media, including text, graphics, audio, and video, as well as in user control of the input. To the extent that multimodal input reflects characteristics of the target language use situation, it has the potential to enhance authenticity as well as increase the intrinsic interest of the test tasks themselves, strengthening the possibility for greater interaction between the test taker’s communicative language ability and the test tasks.

Moreover, such processes can be assessed during the course of participation in normal online learning activities, raising the possibility of online diagnostic assessment of some strategies. At the same time, since such assessments are different from the familiar grammaticality judgments, self-reports, etc. used in SLA research, they raise important questions about the validity of inferences in SLA research tasks. For example, Hegelheimer and Chapelle (2000) suggest that mouse clicks used to request definitions for vocabulary might be used as an indicator of noticing, which is a construct of interest in SLA research, but that at the same time such an inference raises questions about accepted methods for justifying inferences.
