Joanna Kic-Drgas – Ferit Kılıçkaya
This paper investigates how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to generate classroom foreign language tests and aims at determining challenges and opportunities during item creation. The study benefited from a case study, a form of qualitative research, using data from a single subject to examine the issue of generating classroom assessment items using an AI system in its natural environment. The findings revealed that using AI posed several opportunities and challenges for the participant. The analysis of the comments indicated three significant opportunities/benefits of using AI: practicality, customization, efficiency, and four challenges: readability, validity, lack of data for other languages, and ownership.
Key words: artificial intelligence, assessment, exam questions, foreign language teaching, readability
