The Online Placement Test (OPT) is designed to automatically measure the English proficiency and development of reading and listening proficiency, with a good degree of reliability. It also measures knowledge of grammatical forms and understanding of literal and figurative meanings of the included structures.
Even though it is not a test of the four skills, there is the option to conduct an online interview to assess oral production. To ensure reliability of results, OPT has been developed by experts in language assessment and evaluation and benchmarked against the appropriate standards.
The questions included are designed according to the CENNI and the CEFR levels to provide institutions and individuals feedback on their language level that allows them to make informed decisions. If the test is applied to a group of students, feedback can identify strengths and areas of opportunity.
Questions evaluate examinees according to their linguistic, sociolinguistic and knowledge of communication strategies in the English language. Both, semantic knowledge and the pragmatic use of language in a professional or academic context, are asessed.
