Correlates to Sophisticated Statistical Models
Versant tests use artificial intelligence to efficiently and accurately assess language proficiency. Test results are quicker and more reliable with “bullet proof” automatic scoring.
The speaking tests employ speech processing technology to evaluate the content and manner of speech. With correlation to sophisticated statistical models, Versant analyzes the varied rhythms and pronunciations of both native and non-native speakers.
Spoken language screening tests are also available for Spanish, Arabic, French and Dutch.
The writing tests use the Knowledge Analysis Technologies™ (KAT) engine and Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to generate semantic similarity of words and passages by analyzing large bodies of relevant text. LSA can then understand the meaning of the text in the same way a human reader does.
