Summary
This chapter describes and evaluates an intermediate online, task-based Chinese course through an analysis of learner performance on the course tasks and assessments, including the performance-based assessments (PBAs) developed specifically for the course. After a brief consideration of online instruction and task-based language teaching (TBLT), the online TBLT course is described in some depth and the technology-mediated pedagogic tasks and associated PBAs are presented. The findings from these tasks and assessments are then reported, followed by a discussion of what the outcomes data reveale
