SAIJETAL Volume 31, Number 4, ISSN 0346-251X
Provides examples of student modeling techniques that have been employed in computer-assisted language learning over the past decade.

Shows how a student model can support computerized adaptive language testing for diagnostic purposes in a Web-based language learning environment that does not rely on parsing technology.
