included in the identification information of the examiner. For example, the server 200 sets the
school folder as the top, and organizes the folders in order of the date and time folder, the grade
folder, the class folder, and the student folder, and includes the voice data of the answer in the
lowest student folder. At this time, the file name containing the audio data may be converted into
an ID, and this ID may be assigned to the audio data. This ID may be used for identification
information of voice data at the time of scoring.
[0039]
Next, the information processing apparatus 300 displays a grading screen for scoring voice data
stored in the server 200 using a web browser, and acquires grading data of a grading result by
the grader 40. The information processing apparatus 300 is an apparatus used by the grader 40.
The information processing apparatus 300 may be an apparatus installed overseas.
[0040]
For example, the grader 40 is a native person who is located abroad, and the plurality of graders
40 grade the voice data assigned to the user using the information processing apparatus 300. In
addition, the company 20 side sends the detailed data of the scoring standard to the grader 40.
[0041]
The information processing apparatus 300 of the grader 40 outputs one or a plurality of audio
data to be scored from the grading screen, and the grader 40 performs grading by referring to
the detailed data of the grading standard. In addition, a plurality of scorers 40 may perform
scoring on the same voice data to reduce variation in the scoring results due to the difference in
the scorers 40.
[0042]
The information processing apparatus 300 of the grader 40 uploads the grading data of the
grading result to the server 200 according to the instruction of the grader 40. Thus, the server

example, the analysis unit 422 may start the process of analyzing the volume when it detects an
input of voice.
[0064]
The indicator control means 424 controls an indicator indicating the volume. The indicator
control means 424 determines whether the volume acquired from the analysis means 422 is
equal to or higher than a predetermined value (first predetermined value). As the predetermined
value, an appropriate value may be set in advance by an experiment or the like. In addition, the
indicator control means 424 may start the indicator control process when the analyzed volume is
obtained.
[0065]
The indicator control means 424 changes the display form of the indicator based on the
determination result. For example, when the indicator has a shape that expands and contracts
according to the volume (for example, a rod or a circle), the indicator control unit 424 may
change the color of the shape depending on whether the volume is equal to or higher than a
predetermined value. In addition, the indicator control means 424 may display a border line
having a predetermined value on the indicator.
[0066]
The display control means 426 is a display for prompting the examiner to increase the volume if
the time for which the volume is less than the predetermined value is longer than a
11-04-2019
17
predetermined time or if the problem for the volume to be less than the predetermined value is
greater than a threshold. Control is performed to cause the display means 404 to display an
object.
[0067]
For example, the display control means 426 controls the display means 404 to display a pop-up
or the like to call attention to make the voice louder when the time when the volume becomes
less than the predetermined value is longer than 5 seconds.
In another example, the display control unit 426 controls the display unit 404 to display the
above-described pop-up or the like when the next problem screen is displayed, when two
problems in which the volume becomes less than the predetermined value continue. Do. The
volume in this case may be the average volume for each problem.
[0068]
In addition, the display control means 426 may set the predetermined time to 0, and when the
volume becomes lower than the predetermined value, may perform a warning to increase the
voice. At this time, when the sound volume becomes equal to or higher than a predetermined
value, the above-described alerting is not performed. Moreover, as a method of alerting, not only
display of pop-up etc. but alerting may be performed by vibration or voice.
[0069]
In addition, as the timing at which the display control means 426 calls attention, when the test
execution screen (problem screen) for inputting voice is displayed, between the problem and the
problem, and the next problem is displayed Occasionally, it may be just before speaking by the
examinee.
[0070]
Note that the display control unit 426 may call attention such that the tablet terminal 100 is
slightly removed from the mouth or the voice is slightly smaller if the volume is equal to or
11-04-2019
18
higher than a predetermined value (second predetermined value).
The second predetermined value is larger than the first predetermined value.
[0071]
As mentioned above, the test execution means 402 has a function which changes the display
form of the indicator which shows the sound volume displayed, for example in the execution
screen of a test. This enables the examiner to recognize whether the volume of the input voice
data is a volume suitable for scoring while the test application is being executed. For example, by
changing the color of the indicator, the test execution means 402 can make the examiner grasp
at a glance whether the volume is appropriate or not.
[0072]
Further, the test execution means 402 can cause the examiner to recognize the volume of the
voice uttered in real time by performing voice processing during execution of the test
application.
[0073]
In addition, the test execution unit 402 can warn the subject having a small voice whether to
bring the tablet terminal 100 close to the mouth or increase the voice.
