The right level


Introduction

Computer-based tests are suitable for candidates who are


more comfortable with a keyboard and mouse than with
paper and pencil. They also offer more exam dates throughout
the year and permit shorter registration times allowing
candidates to register as little as a week before taking their test.

The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) is the


standard benchmark used internationally to describe language
ability. It plays a central role in language and education policy
worldwide. All of our English language exams are developed in
accordance with the CEFR and the chart below shows you the
level at which each exam is assessed.

The table below gives you useful information about the formats
in which each exam is available. A separate table for Teaching

Cambridge ESOL and the CEFR

Results

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages


(CEFR) is a series of descriptions of abilities which can be
applied to any language and can be used to set clear targets for
achievement in language learning. It has now become accepted
all over the world as a way of benchmarking language ability.

Cambridge ESOL is committed to providing candidates with


accurate, informative results as quickly as possible after they
take their exam or test. In many cases including all computerbased exams results are issued within two weeks of the test
date, and we are continually working to provide results as
quickly as possible for all exams, without compromising the
extensive assessment and quality control processes that ensure
fairness and reliability. Candidates' results give a breakdown of
their performance in each of the four skills listening, speaking,
reading and writing.

Cambridge English exams are developed in accordance with


the principles and approaches of the CEFR.

Introduction

Quality and security

Extended certication

To ensure that our exams are a fair and accurate representation


of candidates abilities, we are committed to the highest
standards of quality, security and integrity.

Extended certication is a way of making candidates


certicates more meaningful and informative, by reecting
more precisely the correspondence between their Cambridge
ESOL grade and the level of skills they have demonstrated in
relation to the CEFR levels.

All Cambridge ESOL centres follow a detailed code of practice


which sets out the highest standards of security throughout
the testing process, from registration to results. Security is now
being enhanced even further as we introduce a system of testday photos.
All of Cambridge ESOLs systems and processes are certied
as meeting the internationally recognised ISO: 9001 2008
standard for quality management.

Test process
At Cambridge ESOL we constantly review the exams we
provide to ensure they are accurate, relevant and fair. Creating
a new exam which is a thorough and meaningful test of a new
area of assessment is a complicated process requiring careful
research and testing. Some of the worlds leading experts in
language assessment contribute to the work of Cambridge
ESOL and the quality of our exams is built on their combined
expertise, experience and understanding of assessment
and learning.

Introduction

Examinations and Support Products Catalogue

Each exam measures a range of abilities, and candidates who


score sufficiently high marks to demonstrate that they fall into
the CEFR band above the one targeted by the test (typically
by getting grade A) can have this reected on their certicate.
Similarly, candidates who just fail to achieve a pass mark, but
have demonstrated sufficient skills, can receive a certicate
showing that they have achieved the CEFR level below the one
targeted by the exam.
Candidates who achieve grade A in Cambridge English: Advanced
(which assesses Level C1) receive a certicate showing that
they have achieved Level C2. Cambridge English: Key candidates
who achieve a narrow fail will receive Level A1 certicates, and
Cambridge English: Preliminary and Business English Certicate:
Preliminary candidates who achieve a narrow fail receive Level
A2 certicates.

The practical element of the Delta


course meant that I could feel the
benets I was gaining from it when
working with my learners, who
seemed to appreciate their central
role in my own learning.
My colleagues both at my school and
on the course were also an important
part of the learning process. I now
look forward to a more relaxing year,
putting into practice more of what
I learned. First and foremost that
means reecting on my teaching
at every stage in a way I was not
capable of before.

TKT

Specialist modules
To extend the range of knowledge offered under the umbrella of the Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT), a exible set of specialist
modules has been created. TKT is both for experienced teachers and those who have not yet started teaching. There are three
specialist TKT modules. TKT has been created so that the modules can be taken all together at the same time or separately, in any
order, over a period of time.

TKT: Content and Language Integrated Learning


(CLIL)
This module tests the knowledge of concepts related to content
and language integrated learning. TKT: CLIL describes an
evolving approach to teaching where subjects are taught and
studied through the medium of a non-native language.
In TKT: CLIL learning a second or foreign language and learning a
curricular subject are given a joint role; for example, a
non-native speaker learning geography in English.
TKT: CLIL tests knowledge about content teaching in a second
language and the learning, thinking and language skills which
are developed across different curriculum subjects. It tests
knowledge of how to plan lessons as well as knowledge of
activities and resources used to support a CLIL approach. It also
tests knowledge of teaching strategies and how assessment is
carried out in CLIL contexts.

TKT: Knowledge about Language (KAL)

teachers awareness of the language needs of learners, and the

Teaching Awards and tests

English teachers need to be both linguistically aware and able


to understand the difficulties students may encounter in the
language learning process. To help meet this need, TKT: KAL
tests a candidates knowledge of the language systems needed
by teachers for planning and teaching their lessons.

EMC/5281/0Y01 (*02477447851*)

TKT: Young Learners (YL)


In January 2011, Cambridge ESOL is introducing a new module,
TKT: Young Learners.
TKT: YL will test the background knowledge related to teaching
young learners in the 612 age range and the practice of
planning lessons, teaching strategies and assessing learning.
It is suitable for international candidates teaching across the
primary sector of education. Candidates taking the test are
likely to have at least some experience of teaching English
to young learners and will be familiar with the language of
teaching as represented in the TKT glossary.
