For Universities

The International English Test (IET) is an online test to evaluate international students’ english level.

Why was IET test created?

Many students have difficulties in taking the IELTS or TOEFL test due to the COVID-19 restrictions during the pandemic. In order to help students and help universities to evaluate prospective students’ English level we founded the IET test.

The IET test is created by China Admissions and in partnership with leading English examiners with over 10 years experience assessing a students’ English level. To assess students we use the CEFR framework.

About the CEFR

In November 2001, a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)  to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.

IET Test Development

Phase 1 – Oral Interview
Phase 2 – Full IET test

The first phase of the IET test is the oral interview. It is performed with a 1 on 1 interview online with a fully trained English examiner with at least 10 years of English examining experience on Zoom.

The test is designed to assess whether the students oral English level is ‘classroom ready’.

In April 2021 we are launching the full International English test which includes reading, writing and listening sections.

The test is secure. It is fully proctored using a person to verify the students identity at the start of test and throughout the test we record their screen, environment, keyboard, enforce a screen lock. We also use AI technology to detect suspicious activity which are then double checked and then if we find that the student has engaged in a certain activity they are disqualified.
We ensure the accuracy of the test by having a large bank of questions and constantly testing and evaluating the questions and answers.
The main benefits of the test is that it is fast, accurate and secure. An added benefit is that as a university you scan the QR code and login to the system to watch the students interview.
