An International Standard

What is the CEFR?

The CEFR is the European standard of measuring language level. It provides a six point scale of language proficiency for many different language skills. The scale is widely used throughout the world and allows you and everyone you work with to understand exactly what your candidates can do with the language.

How Speaknow aligns with CEFR

The Speaknow Assessment aligns with the CEFR by using proficiency scales with the same descriptions of English skills to train our raters and algorithms for automated grading. The result is a set of scores that is easy to understand. Speaknow's use of the CEFR provides you with the information you need to make informed hiring and admissions decisions.
