Testing Language

Language tests exist for several main purposes, some of these are: for placement into a language course, to assess the suitability of job candidates, to assess suitability for a programme of study, to assess progress over a period of language study and to assess progress at the end of a period of language study. All of these require a slightly different approach to the test content; some examine previously studied material, some assess functional and lexical ability and some assess academic language or some other particular style or register.
