Test Development

Let’s design tests together that people WANT to take

We know testing. We believe in good testing and we want you to believe in good testing. Tests are an essential part of most language learning journeys, but are often an afterthought. We’ve worked with many institutions  to make their tests work for them in their context. We believe that tests should be meaningful not only in score, but to teachers and students, that they should be manageable and easy to administer, and above all, that they should not be seen as a barrier or hurdle.

We can:

  • give you advice on your existing tests
  • serve as quality control by reviewing your tests
  • help you develop and design your own tests, or we can do it all for you

Our costing is transparent, so you’ll know exactly what you are paying for. Costing works on a sliding scale depending on the size of the project, but an initial chat costs nothing, so feel free to get in touch and find out how we can help you.

Case study: London College of Fashion

We developed the current testing provision for international students at London College of Fashion, a constituent college of University of the Arts London.  The four skills tests are end of course language proficiency tests for pre-university students.  We undertook a full analysis of course content studied and to be studied and collaborated with lecturers and course leaders  to work towards test validity, reliability and practicality.

Target English have worked with us to produce a multi-functional test for international fashion students. Our working partnership is proving highly effective and I am confident our tests will be an asset and exciting addition to our unique programme.
