What does it test?

Aptis is made up of a number of components that are taken in packages rather than individually. You select the core language knowledge component (grammar and vocabulary) and combine it with one or more or more of the skills components for accurate and relevant testing. If you wish to test a mix of skills, different components can be taken together. Targeted testing means more informative results, helping you refine your training or recruitment to be more efficient and cost effective in the future.

Aptis content can also be adapted to suit a specific domain, such as for teaching or travel and tourism, and content can be customised to suit specific cultural contexts and variants of English.  

With computer and pen and paper options, you choose when, how and in what way to test, to ensure you get the results you need.

Aptis scoring

Reading and listening components are marked automatically by the online platform, while a live examiner marks the speaking and writing components. An Aptis candidate will receive a score on a numerical scale (0 to 50) for the grammar and vocabulary section, and a score on a numerical scale (0 – 50) and CEFR level (A1 – C) for each skill they take. This will make up the candidate’s profile of language proficiency.

So whether your testing requirement is for recruitment, workforce development or training, Aptis is the forward thinking English testing you’ve been waiting for.
