ITEL is an English language proficiency exam
accredited by the British Council. It has been
designed in accordance with the Common European
Framework (CEF), and requires a Tablet PC to be
utilised. Taking into consideration the ages of the
students, the duration of the exam is 55 minutes.
The exam comprises five sections and assesses
students separately in listening, reading, spoken
production, spoken interaction and writing skills, as
well as the sub-skills of grammar and vocabulary. The
exam incorporates both photographs and videos, and the speaking component of
the test is delivered through the
use of earphones and microphones.
ITEL is unique in that it delivers
a totally new English proficiency
exam using Tablet PCs, supported by
smart intelligence. This innovative
use of technology ensures that
each student’s ongoing answers
are continually evaluated in order
to provide further questions at the
appropriate level of competency
for the student being tested.
This means that each student’s
questions are different from
those of other students. In other
words, ITEL delivers a completely
personalised exam to each student,
and an accurate assessment of
each student’s English proficiency
level in each separate skill.
