Abstract

IDIOMA-TIC is an authoring tool for developing exercises and tests to improve the proficiency of people studying foreign languages at all levels. IDIOMA-TIC generates exercises or tests for stand-alone and web applications, and consists of two modules: an input module (with database) and an engine that publishes the database in a browsable format. One of the main features of IDIOMA-TIC is its intelligent feedback options, proposing answers that relate as closely as possible to the problem dealt with in the exercise. It is also possible to give error-specific feedback. With IDIOMA-TIC, we generate a large number of exercise types, including a whole range of half-open questions. Our software is able to create and to correct translation exercises, correction, rephrasing, drag and drop, crosswords, dictations. The author can provide hundreds of alternative solutions in a simple way. The program also handles multimedia components (images, video and audio files). Technically, IDIOMA-TIC has a user-friendly interface and is based on an open database of the XML-type.
