Test of English Language LearningTELL
- For teachers who need to understand the proficiency of their English language learners, TELL is a touchscreen-delivered assessment used to screen, diagnose, and progress monitor reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Speech recognition technology automatically scores spoken and written responses, while students from kindergarten through grade 12 interact with fun, engaging activities that feel more like games than tests.
