Language Proficiency Tests

Global Arena offers on-line language proficiency tests for 9 languages. The language proficiency tests are useful for recruitment, job placement, training, and an overall evaluation of language proficiency. 

Available languages: English, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. 

Process:
The language test is issued to the candidate via email. The initial email sent includes instructions on how to access and complete the test. The candidate is given a timeframe to complete the assessment and is able to begin, pause, and resume within that time frame. After the test is completed, the candidate will have immediate access to their report. The test administrator will have access to the full report and detailed feedback for each candidates test. 

Each test lasts from 45 to 60 minutes and contains two sections:
• Grammar and Sentence Structure
• Oral Comprehension

The first section consists of 60 questions and the second 60 questions. The candidate then has immediate access to the report once the test is completed. The results are based on a scale of 0 (complete beginner) to 5 (bilingual). 

Standards:
The language proficiency tests were developed to align with the principles of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, the Center for Canadian Language Benchmarks, the Goethe Institute, and the TCF Standards.
