If you could imagine a new English language proficiency test, what would it look like?

Bring your ideas, hopes, and dreams related to a NEW English language proficiency test to a listening session hosted by the UMass Center for Assessment.  During this 60-minute listening session the CEA hopes to learn what ESOL teachers across the state want and need from a new English language proficiency test - the English Test for Adults (ETA).


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ESOL teachers at all levels

The CEA at UMass is developing the English Test for Adults (ETA) for NRS accountability purposes for adult English learners in Massachusetts. The ETA will measure Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening. In this 60-minute session, the focus will be on getting your input on the administration, format, and reporting that would be most useful to you and your learners.

We want to make sure the test meets the needs of you and your learners. We are hoping to hear from you as to what you would like to see incorporated into the design of ETA, and we’ll be happy to answer questions you may have as well!

Use this Zoom link to join the meeting at 11:00 am on November 18, 2022.
