Coherence

The standards for tests and exams are encapsulated in a coherent and internationally recognized system. This is particularly helpful for curriculum planners and head teachers when defining comparable levels for tests and exams. Tertiary education institutions and personnel managers will also benefit from this when assessing the language competence of students, clients, trainees and applicants.

Transparency

Teachers can easily demonstrate to a new class which subject areas are important for which level and what they can expect from the examination. The teaching objectives are transparent to everybody involved.

Efficiency

Teachers can address the specific needs of individual learners or whole classes, define teaching objectives and organize language material.

Flexibility

The Can Do statements and concrete examples are a real treasure trove which can help test developers at any institution compile activity-based materials which also serve as a basis for exam preparation for teachers at that institution.
