The terms ‘AI’ and ‘Machine Learning’ are becoming ever-more present in today’s world and in the field of education we are particularly well-placed to consider the advantages and possible pitfalls of these new technologies and their implications for learners and test candidates. The Linguaskill test aims to bridge that gap, using the best technology available while still ensuring that the test is valid, reliable, and fair to candidates.

This presentation will cover the current Linguaskill test construct and the changes planned in the new version. It will also cover some mechanics of automated decision-making, including both the Writing and Speaking automarkers used in the Linguaskill test, with a particular focus on the Speaking component and its user experience.
