Global English Testing
Effectively evaluating English language proficiency in an international setting is a critical success factor in providing appropriate language instruction and allowing language learners to demonstrate what they know and can do in the language in authentic, real-world situations.
CAL has decades of experience in the development of valid and reliable language assessments at all educational levels and has worked with governments, programs, and local educators around the world to provide effective language proficiency assessment of English learners in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. We can work with you to develop assessments that meet your specific requirements.
