We have a couple of pages on our website that is dedicated to answering this question. To make it easier for you to locate the information you need though, we have created a downloadable version of the marking criteria.

In this downloadable document we have included the following information:

  1. A summary of the ISLPR® scale which is useful for a test taker to familiarise themselves with.
    • Please note that the full ISLPR® scale is not available for sale and in fact, would not be useful for a test taker to read. The ISLPR® scale is a 40-page document that was written to be used by trained testers familiar with linguistic terminology.
  2. We have outlined the key issues at each defined level of the ISLPR® scale. This will give you an indication of important behavioral features at each level in the scale.
  3. We have outlined the key features of each macro skill. This summarises the key language features that the tester will take into account when assessing your language skills.

Simply fill in your details below and you’ll be prompted to download the guide.
