dc.description.abstract [EN] Computer adaptive language testing offers the possibility to research and practice m-learning using ubiquitous technology. Virtual education in m-learning uses conventional Learning Objects (LO) to enable the possibility of development of several tasks oriented towards language learning including the assessment and verification of skill improvements in second language acquisition. So far, there are few research papers on the impact of using new multimodal digital resources as LO in the design process of foreign language assessment tests through mobile devices because many English certification tests still continue to use traditional testing techniques [face-to-face and pen-and-paper assessments] combined with conventional digital environments oriented to virtual education. Learning languages requires not only new m-learning scenarios for assessment but also multimodal interactive environments to improve the user's experience during proficiency tests or language certification. Multimodal object learning such as augmented environments, learning games, spatial sound, etc. can be integrated into an assessment process to enhance the user¿s experience by simulating natural communicative scenarios. The present article defines an innovative new m-learning scenario for listening comprehension assessment in an on-line test by implementing a multimodal audio learning source named binaural sound. Use of this technology will enable demonstration of other possibilities of human interaction to improve the user's experience in language learning through sound perception and its cognition from the user in an especific learning task. es_ES
dc.description.sponsorship The authors, especially Ms. Magal Royo, would like to express their gratitude to the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports for providing a grant for the Senior Researcher Mobility Project Evaluating Multimodal Interaction for Second Language Acquisition (SLA) Testing in Smartphone Devices[PRX16/00171], used to develop the present article. They would also like to thank the London Knowledge Lab from University College London for supporting the research project. The authors would also like to express their gratitude to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports for the financial support through the Salvador de Madariaga program in University College London (Dr. Magal Royo) in 2015 and Penn State University in 2013 supervised Dr. Price and Dr. Joan Kelly Hall botyh on whom have cooperated in the theoretical aspects of this paper (Dr. Hall), with whom we have been working since 2013, and both theoretical and practical and as a thirsd author (Dr. Price) for this paper. es_ES
