Oxford University Press Oxford Online Placement Test

This test is very convenient, reliable and well-priced test. The shortcoming is that it does not test speaking and writing. But we like this test a lot. It can be done by anyone, anywhere.

The Oxford Online Placement Test helps place test takers in an appropriate level language course and is used as a quick measure of a test taker’s general language ability. Corporate training companies use this test to decide what level of training employees need, and human resources departments use it to check the English level of employees.
