What the C-test is. By Lucy Katona and Zoltan Dornyei from: Forum English Teaching The C-test is an integrative testing instrument that measures overall language competence, very much like the cloze test. It consists of four to six short, preferably authentic, texts in the target language, to which “the rule of two” has been applied: the second half of every second word has been deleted, beginning with the second word of the second sentence; the first and last sentences are left intact. If a word has an odd number of letters, the “bigger” part is omitted, e.g., proud becomes pr-.

One-letter words, such as I, are ignored in the counting. The students’ task is to restore the missing parts. By way of illustration, here is a short C-test: “One cool autumn evening, Bob L., a young professional, returned home from a trip to the supermarket to find his computer gone.

Under the old system of "go find out about" topical research, it took students a huge amount of time to move words from the encyclopedia pages onto white index cards, changing one word in each sentence so as to avoid plagiarism. The New Plagiarism requires little effort and is geometrically more powerful. Level One Research "Just the Facts" Check for Plagiarism On the Web For Free - A Rubric for Assessing Rubrics.

Readiness Checklist - Online Learning - Academics - Concordia University. We pursue online learning with the same passion and commitment to excellence that has marked our 100-year history in quality Christian education. CU Online courses are rich in learner-to-learner and instructor-to-learner interactivity. We balance our courses between offering learners maximized flexibility in terms of coursework completion and the rigor that characterizes a quality (and often condensed) academic experience. Online courses are not necessarily easier or less time-consuming than are face-to-face courses. Online students form a diverse learning community that requires regular “attendance” and nurturing to maximize the learning potential of all participants. If you are looking for a correspondence course, where you can work in isolation outside of a structured schedule, CU Online courses are not for you.
