We propose discriminative methods to generate semantic distractors of fill-in-the- blank quiz for language learners using a large-scale language learners? corpus. Un- like previous studies, the proposed meth- ods aim at satisfying both reliability and validity of generated distractors; distrac- tors should be exclusive against answers to avoid multiple answers in one quiz, and distractors should discriminate learn- ers? proficiency. Detailed user evaluation with 3 native and 23 non-native speakers of English shows that our methods achieve better reliability and validity than previous methods.
