HOW TO ACCURATELY ASSESS ENGLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS

Aptis is an internationally benchmarked English test that you can use:

  • as part of your English development programme
  • as an audit tool to identify the training needs of your teachers or students
  • at the beginning, middle and end of your academic year to evaluate the effectiveness of your English language programme
  • to identify test takers’ strengths and weaknesses.

BENEFITS:

  • Aptis uses scenarios relevant to individual candidates
  • Assess reading, writing, speaking and listening – one skill only or a combination of skills
  • Speaking and writing skills are assessed by a team of English language experts which ensures a high level of accuracy
  • Aptis can be delivered in multiple formats, anytime, anywhere with a quick turnaround in results

Aptis is a flexible, fair and authoritative test which allows you to reliably assess your students or teachers and provides an accurate and reliable assessment of ability in English.

Performance is internationally benchmarked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and this makes it easy to see where improvement is needed, allowing English courses or training to be tailored accordingly.

It can be integrated as pre and post assessment tool into your school, college or university’s development programme - whether Face to Face teaching, e-learning or a blended training/teaching solution.
