Tests and Examinations
One of the aims of the CEFR is to provide a starting point for the development and description of language examinations, in order to promote transparency and coherence through similar specifications and the reporting of profiles across aspects of language proficiency expressed in terms of the common reference levels defined by the CEFR descriptors.
Since the CEFR was first published in 2001, many language examinations have been revised or developed as a result and a great deal of experience has been gained in the process and shared through associations such as Alte (Association of Language Testers in Europe) and Ealta (European Association for Language Testing and Assessment).
