Progress is adaptive – parts of the test are based on an adaptive algorithm that selects the most suitable questions based on a learner’s previous answers. This means that every student gets a different set of questions.
Progress is written by experts – the questions were prepared by teams based in the UK, Australia, the US and Hong Kong. The questions have been tagged with the appropriate Global Scale of English (GSE) level and linked to “can do” statements.
Objective scoring – Progress uses the most up-to-date technology to produce automated, consistent and accurate results.
The test has a number of question types that give learners a chance to demonstrate their English skills in different ways. Some questions ask learners to choose the correct option or answer an open question. Other questions require the learner to repeat or copy what has been said. Others require the learner to describe something or write a short essay. The questions are similar to those that the student will have encountered in the classroom.
Students can take the sample test at any time to familiarize themselves with the types of questions in the test.Download a test booklet
