What is a language proficiency test, or language testing?
Language proficiency pertains to an individual’s capacity to both speak and comprehend a specific language. Proficiency test scores grade the skill with which a person can effectively communicate in the tested language; proficiency levels indicate an individual’s ability to read, write, and converse within a designated language.
How is the test scored and results delivered?
The test is recorded and assessed by certified raters and a score assigned based on a scale governed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Results are provided within 10 business days, often earlier.
What does the test consist of and how long does it take?
The test will take 20 to 40 minutes and consists of three components:
- A background survey to allow the program to determine the appropriate questions.
