GrammatikPro - Online tests for the consolidation of language-related competencies

Project description

The project will develop online-based evaluation tools for grammar, spelling and punctuation competence, which will be used to consolidate language-related competencies. Personal problem areas are identified through participation in the tests. Further information to reference and practice materials then provide clues for individual consolidation of one's own language-related competencies.

The competence tests are developed in the Marburg ILIAS system and are available there to all interested persons. The competence tests are primarily intended for students of German studies as well as for teachers in the preparatory service and for teachers in the school service (especially for the teaching staff from the subject German and the foreign language subjects).

GrammatikPro was funded by the project "Für ein sehr gutes Studium" (For a very good study) of the University of Marburg.
