Testing Standards

Based on ACTFL’s rigorous test development research, standards, and best practices our testing program and ratings have become a standard measure of language proficiency in the U.S for the past thirty years. LTI provides valid and reliable reading, writing, speaking, and listening tests for our corporate clients in over 60 countries and 120 languages.

Setting a Passing Score

    Establishing an appropriate proficiency minimum for a position requiring specific language skills is an important phase when setting up an assessment program. If a minimum standard is set too low, the organization risks customer dissatisfaction and inefficient operations. If the standard is set too high, the applicant pool is narrowed causing qualified applicants to be unfairly excluded.


    Task Analysis

    TLI, with a group of Industrial-Organizational psychologists, developed a formal LTI Task Analysis process to assist in establishing minimum proficiency levels for language-specific positions. This process of closely examining the communication tasks of a bilingual position and selecting an appropriate proficiency level is an invaluable opportunity for human resources and operations managers to become familiar with language proficiency and the description of various levels, and gain a sense of "ownership" in the assessment program.
