Carnegie Mellon University is partnering with Duolingo, one of its spinoffs, to see if a 20-minute, $20 test is sufficient to prove international students' English proficiency. Duolingo, meanwhile, hopes its test can upend the market. Duolingo, a crowdsourced web translation project created by researchers in Carnegie Mellon's computer science department, spun off from the university in November 2011 to become a venture capital-backed startup. The company now offers language learning Web and smartphone apps.
