Standardized Test

A standardized test is an assessment administered and scored in a consistent manner across all test-takers to ensure comparability of results. In language education, standardized tests evaluate proficiency in areas such as reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Examples include TOEFL, IELTS, and Cambridge English exams. Standardized tests are used for various purposes, including placement, certification, academic admissions, and program evaluation. They provide objective data on learners' abilities and help maintain high educational standards.
