The British Council has officially launched an innovative global English assessment tool for organisations and institutions around the world.

 

New Delhi. The British Council has developed an international English test that integrates computer, telephone and pen and paper delivery to allow candidates to sit the test through one or more of channels; conducting it from many locations around the world through computers and face-to-face interactions. The new global English assessment service is called Aptis.

Aptis has been built on a new interactive platform; a fully integrated test development, management, delivery, monitoring and reporting system, which offers results in as little as 24 hours. This platform also enables organisations to administer the test themselves, at a time that suits them. The marking system of Aptis is task-based rather than test-based. This means in one task several people in different locations around the world mark different items within the test, all through the online platform.

Candidates are also able to access Aptis from remote locations around the world even with limited internet connectivity, allowing many more organisations and individuals to develop relationships with the English language.

Aptis is a flexible and adaptable English test for adults, which can be used to assess ability in all four English skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). It can also be customised to test one or more specific skills, which allows organisations to test the skills relevant to their needs. The content of Aptis can be adapted to suit a specific domain, such as for teaching or travel and tourism, as well customised to suit specific cultural contexts and variants of English.

Aptis is a business-to-business English assessment service available to organisations not individuals.
