Michigan State University Less Commonly Taught Languages

“Teachers of Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs) and other languages can sign up to use CLEAR’s Virtual Oral Interview Classroom-based Exam System (VOICES) to assess or monitor their students’ progress in speaking. It’s free and easy to use! Teachers and students can listen to and download the oral responses. Teachers can grade them, and use them to provide feedback to their students.”

Teachers: sign up to allow your classes to take two online virtual assessments per semester.

Students: sign up to take the online virtual assessments in class (on computers or tablets) or at home. There are a total of 16 oral assessments available, and after your teacher signs up, then you can too.

Researchers: sign up for limited access to participant-released-only, searchable data with basic (non-identifiable) speaker information, such as age and level of study (first year, first semester; second year, second semester, etc.).
