Using the Digital Learning Hub, tutors can activate the new intermediate English Skills Test for their students.
The test helps tutors give students the best possible learning experience by ensuring that their English language level is clearly understood as they begin their learning journey. They can use the test results to put students into different groups and choose the most appropriate course and learning materials.
First of all, the new Full English Skills Test for intermediate learners is now available on the Digital Learning Hub. Previously the full English Skills Test was only available on the Journey 2 English platform.
Secondly, the multi-level Full English Skills Test has been split into three tests; beginner, intermediate and advanced. The new intermediate (B1/B2) level test has now been added to the Digital Learning Hub.
See the table below to see the difference between the short and full tests.
Students can repeat the Short English Skills Test as and when they like as it is auto-marked.
Students who want to take the Full English Skills Test again (resit) will need to ask their tutor because the speaking and writing sections of this test are tutor marked.
As a tutor you need to install the Full English Skills Test for your students.
In the next few weeks, we will be adding the beginner and advanced Full English Skills test to the Digital Learning Hub.

Tutors can use the Full English Skills test at three levels to help place students at the start of term and assess their ongoing progress.
