Research Frontiers

Qin, Tianyu, & Zhang, Jie. (2019). Computerized dynamic assessment and second language learning:

Programed mediation to promote future development. Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 17 (2):

198-213. DOI: 10.1891/1945-8959.17.2.198

This paper centers on two projects in which C-DA was used to assess university-level

learners’ performance in an L2 context. In the first, a listening and reading C-DA

project was employed to assess reading and listening comprehension, while the second

involved using C-DA to evaluate pragmatic comprehension. We specifically bring into

focus how the two approaches address topics including definition of constructs,

determination of tasks, design of mediation, scoring procedures, interpretation of

scores/performances, and evidence of transfer. Through identifying what has been

achieved and what needs to be explored further, we provide a critical analysis of L2 C-

DA research and propose future directions for applying this unique technology for

helping L2 learners develop language skills. We also examine the pedagogical

applications of C-DA in terms of interpreting student performance and developing

tailored instruction for individuals with diverse learning needs.

Zhang, Jie, & Lu, Xiaofei. (2019). Measuring and supporting second language development using

computerized dynamic assessment. Language and Sociocultural Theory, 6 (1): 92-115.

This study developed an innovative framework for measuring and supporting second language development

through integrating diagnostic language assessment and instruction by incorporating mediation. Nineteen

students enrolled in an intermediate Chinese listening and speaking course at a large public university in the

Midwest United States took a computerized dynamic assessment (C-DA) listening test in the Spring 2015

semester. The test report also included a learner profile detailing each student’s independent and mediated

performance on clusters of items designed to test different language constructs. Based on the results of the

diagnostic C-DA test, students were categorized in three groups, and each group was offered instructional

support tailored to their listening abilities and learning needs. Analysis of the diagnostic test reports, student

interviews, and end-of-semester student evaluations of the course provided evidence that the integration of

diagnostic language assessment and instruction that incorporates appropriate mediation helped creating a

coherent and effective pedagogy for the students.

University of Arizona Team

Launches New Teaching and

Research Resource,

DormTalk

We are pleased to announce that the

DormTalk website is ready for us to share with the

CLTA community. The DormTalk website

provides ten modules

(https://dormtalk.arizona.edu/modules/ ) focusing

on ten different topics that can be readily

incorporated into Chinese language teaching. In

each module, we provide two annotated

conversations that were authentic interactions

between American study abroad students in China

and their Chinese age peers. Age-appropriate

authentic materials are often hard to find in

Chinese language teaching; those that are available

tend to be either too childish (e.g., reading

materials designed for Chinese children) or too

advanced with only adult native Chinese speakers

(e.g., Chinese fictions, or films). The DormTalk

project uses recordings from Chinese L2 learners

and their native Chinese-speaking roommates.

The conversations also show the kinds of culture

shock and language barriers that learners often

encounter in real life, which are often overlooked

in exiting Chinese language teaching materials.

This L2 learner perspective is reflected in the

topics of the conversations that we have selected,

such as discussions about Chinese taxi drivers’

accents (in Language module), or a conversation

about the need to wear masks because of the smog

(Weather). Suggested activities based on authentic tasks are also provided. We hope teachers looking

for supplementary materials to incorporate into their Chinese language classrooms will find our

website useful. We welcome feedback and suggestions from Chinese language teachers and learners.

This project was made possible by two seed grants from the University of Arizona and a

federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education through CERCLL, a Title VI Language

Resource Center. Please contact the project director, Wenhao Diao (wdiao@email.arizona.edu) for

questions or more details.

CALL FOR ARTICLE PROPOSALS: Elementary-level foreign

language instruction: from theory to practice

Editor: Ekaterina (Katya) Nemtchinova, Seattle Pacific University, katya@spu.edu

Successful elementary level language courses are crucial for a foreign language program as they can lay a

foundation for further language and culture study, instill the love for language, and populate upper-level

courses with students. One way to ensure that the pursuit of the language continues beyond the first year is

to sustain learner’s interest, confidence, and motivation from the start by supporting language instruction

with engaging activities and contextualized practice. This edited volume aims to facilitate teaching language

at the beginning level by exploring a wide range of critical research and practical issues of interest to

instructors of the first-year language classroom. To this end, you are invited to submit proposals for articles

that address research or pedagogical issues with the focus on classroom implications for novice levels of

adult language proficiency.

The articles in this volume will:

• focus on adult learners in a formal classroom setting (e.g. college or university classes);

• address facilitation of linguistic, communicative, and cultural competence in the framework of

reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills;

• describe successful instructional strategies and collaborative projects;

• discuss empirical research findings and their implications for classroom teaching;

• present innovative materials and techniques that enhance teaching and learning;

• offer practical teaching suggestions that would work in any adult elementary-level language

classroom.

Given the relative scarcity of materials targeting adult novice-level instruction, the ideas, methods,

techniques, and practical recommendations contained in the book will strengthen the elementary

curriculum as they appeal to various learning styles, build learners’ confidence, and help stimulate language

production in the context of classroom-specific uses.

The book will consist of the following tentative sections:

CLTA NEWSLETTER January 2019

• Grammar and vocabulary

• Speaking and listening

• Reading and writing

• Intercultural competence

• Assessment and evaluation

Article proposals should be submitted electronically (Word document, APA style guidelines) to Katya

Nemtchinova at katya@spu.edu by August 1, 2019

Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by January 15, 2020

This volume has been discussed with Routledge, which expressed an interest in the project. Once article

proposals are finalized, a full book proposal will be sent to the publisher. Upon acceptance by the

publisher, potential article authors will be invited to submit full articles (up to 6,000 words) and will be sent

guidelines for preparing articles along with submission deadlines. Articles should be original work and

should not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All submitted articles will undergo a blind review

process.

Chinese for Specific and

Professional Purposes: Theory,

Pedagogical Applications, and

Practices

Editors: Hongyin Tao, Howard Hao-Jan Chen

This book, likely the first of its kind in the English language, explores

Chinese for specific and professional purposes (CSP) in terms of

theorizing and developing practical applications for language teaching

and learning. While research in language for specific purposes is

thriving for languages such as English, there has been comparatively

little such research conducted for Chinese. This volume attempts to

fill the gap by bringing together practitioners from a broad

international scholarly community, who share common interests yet

diverse orientations.

Seventeen papers are included, and address four broad thematic categories: (1) academic Chinese, (2)

business Chinese, (3) Chinese for medicine and health care, and (4) Chinese for other broadly defined

services and industries (diplomacy, tourism, wine-tasting, etc.). Representing the state of the art in CSP

research, the book offers an indispensable guide for anyone interested in theoretical and practical issues in

this area of applied Chinese language studies.
