CAEL

CAEL Test

The Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Test is a test designed to measure the English language proficiency of students planning to study in Canadian postsecondary institutions.
CAEL is one of the best tools for identifying students with the right English skills for academic success. It provides an authentic representation of language use in a Canadian academic context. Test takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions, and write a short essay, as they would be expected to do in a first-year Canadian university or college classroom.
CAEL is now available as a computer-delivered test, known as CAEL CE (Computer Edition). CAEL CE has been improved to deliver all four components (reading, listening, writing, and speaking) by computer in a single test sitting.
