WHAT DOES IT MEASURE?
PTE Professional™ measures a wide range of language proficiency, including advanced skills. Some difficult items are included to specifically target those test-takers whose English skills are advanced. In addition, the exam requires productive skills rather than simply selecting an answer from multiple choice options. Productive skills require a candidate to demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak and listen. This approach emphasizes functional, real-time use of language skills to ensure a candidate’s ability to respond matches real-time conversational expectations.
