There are three levels of assessment for the MYLE tests: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The three levels of oral proficiency have similar features such as test formats, test environment, assessment procedures and standardisation of examiners.
The Michigan Young Learners English (MYLE) tests are a fun and motivating way to assess the English of young learners in elementary and middle school. The tests cover all four language skills and are developed by Michigan Language Assessment in partnership with Cambridge Assessment English.
The tests provide a clear and transparent assessment from Bronze (beginner) through Silver to Gold (early intermediate). The tests are international, with a focus on American English, and are paramount because the testing experience has a positive impact on children and their subsequent language learning.
MET Go! 11 to 15 years
Level A1 to B1
MET Go! is a secure, multi-level test that measures English language proficiency from beginner to intermediate level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR A1-B1). It is a four-skills test consisting of reading, listening and writing, with an optional speaking component. The test contains authentic tasks and situations which are particularly suitable for teenagers.
The score report includes details of the test taker’s achievements, including a separate score linked to the CEFR for each skill section taken. Each test taker also receives personalised recommendations on the back of their score report with activities and other ways in which they can improve certain skills.
MET 15 years and older
Level A2 to C1
The MET is a 4-skill test where test takers can choose to take either 2 or 4 skills. This means that the required 2-skill sections of Listening and Reading may be accompanied by the Writing and Speaking sections.
The MET is regularly updated to ensure that the test reflects current research in language teaching and assessment. It also continues to provide test takers with a test that helps them demonstrate their language proficiency.
The score report includes details of the examinee and the scaled score for each section of the test, ranging from 0 to 80. The score report includes the final score, which is the average of all sections of the test taken by the candidate.
On the other hand, the MET Certificate of Achievement is optional and includes the same information as the score report and can be used for professional purposes.
You can request a Certificate of Achievement from your local test centre or Michigan Language Assessment at any time within four months of your test date.
