arrow up indication


The Dynamic Placement Test sorts your students into their CEFR bands quickly, conveniently and affordably. Test items include a variety of tasks specially designed to exploit the capabilities of online, multimedia delivery. The test runs on the test takers’ own devices and delivers results directly to your browser.


This is an adaptive test focusing on language elements (mostly vocabulary and grammar), listening, and reading. The output is a CEFR band, further refined with a DPT score between 0 and 120. The test takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and is randomised, so that students sitting next to each other will see different questions.


Test setup. You decide the test time, place and who will take it. Students can take the test in a traditional exam hall with invigilators, a lecture theatre, or at home pre-arrival.
