Online and on-demand English language evaluation for high schools and middle schools. Graded in 24 hours and backed by a team of ESL professionals, iTEP SLATE has everything secondary institutions need to make informed admissions and assessment decisions. 

iTEP SLATE comes in two forms. The most well-known version being iTEP SLATE-Plus which tests grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Additionally, we offer iTEP SLATE-Core which tests grammar, listening and reading. Institutions should use SLATE-Plus for official admissions purposes. For internal assessments, on the other hand, either test is suitable.

iTEP SLATE-Plus for admissions must be administered online, at a certified iTEP Test Center. SLATE Core can be administered online at private institutions — a paper format is also available.

The SLATE-Core takes 60 minutes, while the SLATE-Plus takes 90 minutes. This includes a 10 minute preparation period.

We have partner institutions all around the world, and our list of partners is always growing. To see a current list of institutions who accept iTEP, please click here. Interested in becoming a partner school? Apply today

"During my more than 30 years of experience working in the secondary school environment, I have not seen an exam as reliable and appropriate for the high school age group as iTEP SLATE.”
– Roger Riske

"iTEP SLATE is far superior to other tests of which I am aware that specifically target middle and high school students. iTEP SLATE is currently being utilized for formal English proficiency certification in a number of countries, most notably China, where proper certification is a key component in preparing children for the future."
