Formative Testing for adult migrants preparing for higher education: Suggested testing constructs, tasks and rating scales



This testing framework includes a set of testing constructs, test tasks and rating scales developed over several months based on the needs of adult migrants preparing for entry into Higher Education. Using the descriptors and competences described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, the team developed a open testing model that would allow adult learners to prepare for the requirements of English language proficiency tests such as IELTS, necessary for entry into universities. This assessment provides an intermediate step for learners to engage in smaller and more approachable versions of the test tasks they will eventually have to prepare for international proficiency tests.
