Placement Test for Occupational German Language Courses
Proficiency assessment based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
About the book
Simple and reliable
This placement test – proficiency assessment – is specially designed for the language-based placement of scholars in occupational training courses of the German language. It is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR). Using this test, it is possible to reliably assess the proficiency in the German language in the CEFR levels A1 to C1.
Reading and writing skills play a particularly important role on the labor market. Therefore, this test is focused on the optimum assessment of these skills by checking the vocabulary and the reading skills.
The test is based on a scalable format, which means that the level of difficulty is stepped up with each single exercise. Immediately after the test, the user, for example a member of staff of a language training center, can calculate the result using the scoring sheet integrated into the brochure.
As all indications for handling the test are given in English, staff of an institution using this test do not require German language skills themselves.
The test is designed to perform the grading of all members of even very large groups of students, simplifying the correct placement of participants to the appropriate classes. Furthermore, the test allows the easy review of the level of proficiency also during a language class.
Target group are language schools and other educational institutions of all sizes, which aim to perform an optimized placement of language course participants.
