The prototype of an online adaptive vocabulary test system (OAVTS) will be demonstrated. The system, the first stage of a web-based adaptive English placement test platform, is now being developed to help universities group students into classes which match their English proficiency. In a computer-adaptive language test (CALT), each examinee takes a unique test that is tailored to his or her own ability level. It is generally believed that CALT is faster, more reliable and more cost-effective. With the help of corpus-based word list stored in a database, it is more statistically objective for test makers to decide the difficulty level of vocabulary test items. OAVTS is expected to help teachers or test makers quickly prepare and edit their vocabulary test items online. Some practical issues such as the classification of the word list, definitions of item codes, selection of the test-stopping rule, and design of user interface will also be discussed.
