Fast, Accurate and Reliable Evaluation

GlobalEnglish Assessment is a suite of tools that quickly and effectively evaluates spoken and written Business English proficiency.

Customers access the easily administered assessments via our online Dashboard. Tests can be taken on-site or remotely. Assessment sessions range from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the test that is most appropriate for your needs.

Assessment provides the ideal pre-screening tool for international recruitment, with the ability to objectively measure candidates in different locations against the same requirements.

Assessment also measures individual requirements and progress as part of a Business English learning program. Candidates can be evaluated for positions with broader English requirements, while assessments can benchmark them against each other, industry standards or specific job requirements.


How It Works

Specific Skills

GlobalEnglish assessments for speaking and writing provide an overall score and various specific sub-scores such as Vocabulary, Grammar, Fluency and Listening by testing a wide range of business communication skills.

Range of Testing

Our variety of STEP+ and Versant tests allows GlobalEnglish to provide you the most effective test for your assessment needs and testing environments.

GlobalEnglish can guide you to the most appropriate assessment or group of assessments solution aligned with your English communication business objectives.

Fast and Accurate

Assessments can be taken on a computer or by phone. Scores become available via email or through online test administration tools within minutes. Extensive vetting makes GlobalEnglish assessments very accurate gauges for Business English competencies. Our automated scoring aligns with expert human rating but with significantly faster and more consistent results. This ensures accurate, effective and objective testing across global locations. 

Organizational Improvement

Test results provide managers with actionable information, including Hire/Don’t Hire, Promote/Don’t Promote, Move Ahead/Place in Training. For those requiring training, One Assessment scores prescribe placement into our One learning programs or into other programs using scores we provide for globally recognized language scales such as CEFR, GSE, TOEFL and TOEIC.


Comprehensive reporting tools enable benchmarking against individual job requirements or competitive candidates as well as industry-specific and global standards.
