Genuine evaluation

Our in-house AI ensures the most authentic results by assessing English proficiency only through open-ended questions. In contrast, other tests rely on tasks with right and wrong answers or repetition to measure individual aspects of proficiency. This prevents them from providing a genuine evaluation of communication skills.

By changing the test from attempt to attempt and tailoring each question based on the test-taker's previous answers, we make sure that results depend on the test-taker’s actual English skills, not on memorization tricks.

AI-powered four-skills assessment, fast results

Our assessment goes beyond counting correct and incorrect answers; it's a comprehensive evaluation of English skills.

The assessment consists of four-skills tests that can be taken individually or in any combination: listening, reading, speaking and writing. And no matter which combination you choose, you get the results within 2 hours!

Proctored and secure

Our AI provides open-ended questions that require authentic answers, using proctoring protocols to prevent pre-fab answers and generated responses.

This advanced proctoring system uses a variety of tools, including detection of AI-generated responses and reading aloud, to ensure the integrity of the test is safeguarded at all times, whether the test is taken on a computer, laptop, or smartphone.

Activate the anti-cheating solution

Backed by humans

Our AI grading is backed up by human raters. Human raters check a percentage of the AI-scored exams, allowing constant readjustment and improvement of the AI algorithms.

Whenever an exam is flagged for cheating, it is reviewed by at least one human rater to ensure fairness.
