What are language tests

LANGUAGE SKILLS TEST ASSESSMENT

Language tests allow quickly, efficiently and accurately verifying the actual level of language proficiency of candidates and employees (from basic level A1 to proficiency level C2).

These tests are structured according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Modern Languages (CEFRL) and are supervised by the Italian school SSML (Higher School for Linguistic Mediators) in Ancona, a university institute recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research.

There are 3 different categories of tests available in the catalogue:

  • International languages (1 TEST = 1 CREDITS)
  • Non-European languages (1 TEST = 3 CREDITS)
  • Business languages (1 TEST = 2 CREDITS)

We work daily on the implementation of new tests in order to provide a complete and efficient evaluation tool.

Test procedure

ADAPTIVE TESTS WITH INCREMENTAL DIFFICULTY

The examinee has 25 minutes time to answer 30 adaptive questions. By answering a question correctly, the examinee gets a tougher item, while by getting it incorrect, the examinee gets an easier item. The questionnaire is tailored to the each examinee’s competencies, in order to halve the time to deliver and not to demotivate the person at the same time. Indeed, a non-adaptive test might risk being too easy or too difficult.

The test contains from 90 to 100 random questions that are generated and asked to the examinee at each level. That makes our test unique and tailored to each examinee.

After the examinee completes the test, the test score will be emailed to the recruiter. All questions and answers will also be listed.

Here below you can find the language exam levels internationally used, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages:

Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.

B2 – Upper intermediate

Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
