How it works

English Benchmark uses the same automated scoring technology as products including Versant and PTE Academic. These tests are trusted by governments, universities and major corporations around the world as proof of English ability for visa applications, recruitment and student admissions. 

To create our automated tests, we ask hundreds of human markers to examine sample test results. We then feed this data into our scoring algorithm, which allows the engine to predict how a human would score each test.
