We work with each client to develop customized tests that meet their individualized testing needs. Customized testing is recommended for:
- Organizations that wish to assess language skills in a particular context
- Organizations that have enough volume to take advantage of economies of scale achieved through the development of a customized instrument
Our custom tests focus on the communications skills and languages that matter most to an organization. We are committed to excellence in all aspects of the test development process and works with its clients every step of the way to ensure the assessment is targeted in terms of design, delivery and budget. Since different assessments require different solutions, we carefully consider the client’s objectives and context to recommend appropriate test administration vehicles including online as well as paper-and-pencil assessments.
Our core services include development of the following types of tests
- Second language proficiency test
- Language test for specific purposes
- Curriculum-aligned language achievement test
Additional services include:
- Psychometric analysis and review
- Test, validation, standard-setting, and alignment studies
- Test translation, adaptation, and linguistic simplification

Pricing and timeline for customized testing services depends on the complexity and scope of the project after consultation with the client.
We can work with customers to identify specific speaking or writing assessment needs in order to create customized versions of the SOPI and WPE tests.
