How do the multiple-choice English tests work?

All test options that Spot On Learning provides consist of a 20 minute Zoom/Skype conversation with an English teacher and an optional separate multiple-choice test. 

The (Zoom/Skype) Level Test can be combined with the following test:

  1. An online Grammar & Vocabulary Test
  2. An online Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading & Writing test

The multiple-choice test is to nuance and serves as an extra measurable check to balance the assessment of the tutor. Depending on how many questions per test, the norms differ. Underneath, you can see how many items you need to answer correctly to get a certain CEFR Level per test.
