Carnegie Mellon to Partner with Duolingo to Evaluate English Language Certification Test

Carnegie Mellon University will partner with Duolingo to evaluate the company's new low-cost test for certifying the English skills of college and job applicants. The Duolingo Test Center, which Duolingo launched with the support of Google, would enable users to certify English proficiency using a mobile app for a fraction of the cost of existing language certification tests. The test eliminates the cost and inconvenience of travelling to a designated test site, takes less time to complete and provides results immediately. The app attempts to limit cheating using features such as remote video monitoring and test questions that are rarely repeated.
