Certificates are provided by Tracktest English Assessment, a global provider of English tests and an institutional affiliate of the Association of Language Testers in Europe.
Core and Complete tests
Standard certificates are provided for each level test successfully completed via the Tracktest platform.
Standard tests are provided with the maximum flexibility “as is“, i.e. without the time limit, identity verification, and online proctoring by Tracktest Assessment.
If the test is delivered via the local organization (displayed at the bottom of the certificate), they can provide their own on-site invigilation.
Core and Complete tests
Verified certificates have the same tasks and test construct as the standard tests but are more suitable for the higher-stake application thanks to the added security layer:
- The test-taker’s identity is verified with the provided ID or passport. The name and profile photo from the certificate needs to match the information from the ID document.
- The test is taken in a proctored environment. Tracktest records test-takers and their actions with the camera during the whole test session to ensure that only they and not somebody else took the test. The time limit is mandatory.
Core test vs Complete test
The Core test is the detailed assessment of receptive skills: Grammar (Use of English), Reading and Listening. You need to answer at least 65% questions correctly to pass the level and get the English Core certificate.
You obtain the Complete test certificate if you add the test of productive skills- Speaking and Writing to your Core test. You need to achieve an overall score of at least 65% with none of your sub-scores (Core, Speaking, Writing) below 44%.
