English Language Learner Assessments

Pearson can help you break through the language barrier with custom assessments for English Language Learners, automated scoring of writing and speaking proficiency, and a comprehensive system to integrate assessment, instruction and professional development.

A Global Conversation

For more than 30 years, we’ve worked with international universities, global English learning centers, and US state departments of education to develop custom English language proficiency (ELP) assessments.

Innovative Scoring

Our automated assessment scoring helps educators receive faster results and drastically reduce the administrative burden of assessing writing—and especially speaking—proficiency to individual students. We’re especially excited by the work our Center for NextGen Learning & Assessment is doing to develop an interactive assessment that allows English language learners to speak into a mobile phone to get near-instant feedback on their speaking, listening, and reading comprehension in realistic situations!

Coming Full Circle

Don’t just assess. Integrate assessment into meaningfully informed instruction. We’ve partnered with renowned language development expert Dr. Jim Cummins to develop the Pearson English Language System—the first and only integrated solution for you and your English learners that includes assessment, instructional materials, and professional development.
