ELLT Scoring

Candidates are assessed on a 13-level scale for each skill – reading, listening, speaking, and writing – as well as their overall level, this is the OIDI level scale 0-12. Each section of the test is scored on the candidate’s performance and can be mapped to a CEFR grade and IELTS equivalent score.

The ELLT reading test is scored out of a total of 32 with the listening test scored out of a total of 24 points. The ELLT speaking and writing tests are assess on a scale of 0 to 12 points across four criteria: Task Achievement, Accuracy and Appropriacy of Language, Fluency and Disclosure Management & Pronunciation/Grammar & Vocabulary. A candidate’s score is tallied, and an overall level is awarded based on an average of the four component levels.
