ELIGIBILITY

- Native speakers, heritage speakers, and non-native language learners can participate.

- Must be at least 15 years old in order to participate.

- The test questions are written in English, so test takers must be proficient in English to take this exam.

- If there is a registered teacher, they will receive a report of their students' informational ILR scores.

- Every student/examinee will receive an Informational ILR Score of their proficiency.

 

FIELD TEST

Statistical information collected from the field tests will be used to ensure the effectiveness of the test items. The online assessment consists of one listening and one reading comprehension sections, and measures language proficiency of 0+ to 3+ on the ILR scale. Participants can take the assessment from any computer with a secure internet connection, flash, and audio.

 

TESTING WINDOW

The testing window for these proctored assessments starts from July 2017 until April 2018. Participants may take the assessment at any time during this suggested testing window. We recommend scheduling administration dates that fall on third week of each month, if possible OR you may recommend different date/s to us, at your earliest convenience. Please note that the exam will last 2 hours for both reading and listening sections.

 

WHAT’S THE CATCH?

The exam and assessment are free-of-charge, but you are responsible for the following:

1. Scheduling the time and date for your exam’s administration and reserving/finding a space to take the exam (this can be in your office cubicle, a university computer lab, a library computer lab, etc.).

2. Finding a proctor – preferably someone who does not speak the language you will be testing. This can be a colleague, a teacher, etc. We will provide remote tech support.

3. Devoting two hours of your (personal) time.
