Choose reliable assessment
Aptis is underpinned by the latest research in English assessment and is a subject of an ongoing research agenda. Its design, scoring and delivery are managed up to high quality assurance and monitoring standards.
The results from Aptis are mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), allowing you to easily understand the skills and competencies of your students and teachers.
The tasks in Aptis are communicative, which means they test the abilities to interact in English in real-life situations.
Optimise your testing process
Aptis delivers superior flexibility in terms of modularity and customised delivery. You are able to test all or select language skills, whichever option best suits your needs and budget. It can be delivered on-demand, at a time, location and frequency of your choice.
Aptis does not require specific preparation, just familiarisation with the test format. This means it can be easily integrated in your current system without having to change the teaching methodology.
Assessment designed for the education sector
We tailored the content of Aptis specifically for the education sector to facilitate the assessment of teachers and teenagers. By featuring content and scenarios from their daily lives and work situations, Aptis for Teens and General enable candidates to focus on the actual language being tested.
Aptis General assesses the teachers' general English proficiency and is recognised by the Ministry of Education, which authorises it as an instrument for the CENNI (National Language Level Certificate).
Aptis for Teens is designed for 13-17-year-olds. The test format and question types have been adapted to reflect activities that typically occur in a teenager’s everyday life, including social media, homework and sports.
