Main Benefits of English Language Assessments

19 May 2017

Many of the benefits seen when implementing online English language assessments are the same for most pre- or post-employment assessments :


    • Streamlining the Process: By introducing an online language assessment, you can standardize the process using online tools in order to administer and manage tests, cutting down on historically time intensive testing activities. A language assessment platform such as The English Quiz is administered from an easy-to-use dashboard that allows for managing, filtering, reporting and collaboration of tests.
    • Increased Employee Retention: Language assessments provide a concrete result with a clear indication of the person’s ability to conduct business in a specific language (generally English), thus having the appropriate skills for the position. The candidate’s qualifications are verified based on reliable assessment scores. This increases the odds of a successful outcome as opposed to having to let the person go due to their inability to perform certain tasks.
    • More Efficient Hiring: We all know how time consuming the hiring process can be. The statistics - cost per hire and hours to hire - are daunting. Online tools like English language assessments assist in optimizing a company’s talent acquisition personnel, filtering the recruitment pipeline more efficiently and in less time. Integrating an online English assessment screens out the candidates who legitimately do not have the correct language proficiency levels so the talent acquisition team can focus on only qualified candidates.

English Language Assessments can help you streamline the process, improve employee retention and ensure more efficient hiring.


Constructive and validated language assessments are useful tools to supplement the selection process that employers already have in place. Online language assessments help companies make hiring decisions based on criteria defined by the employer and how the candidate’s true ability (in this case language proficiency) meets this criteria. Assessments are also a legitimate indicator of future performance. Thus, cutting down on time spent hiring and potential costs associated with turnover since you are sure the new hire is qualified for the position.
