Academic Credentials Evaluation Institute, Inc. (ACEI) has chosen International Test of English Proficiency (iTEP) as its exclusive English assessment partner. iTEP’s flagship iTEP Academic exam, as well as a new, co-branded ACEI iTEP Business Exam, will be made available at iTEP’s more than 700 test centers around the world for use by ACEI’s academic and professional partners in evaluating the English skills of applicants.

“Our organization evaluates credentials from all over the world so that employers and institutions can compare applicants on an even playing field,” says Jasmin Saidi-Kuehnert, President & CEO of ACEI. “Over the years, we have frequently heard requests for a standardized method of comparing English skills that is more reliable than showing which courses an individual has taken. Partnering with iTEP enables us to provide our international candidates access to exams that assess their English language proficiency in an affordable and efficient way.”

iTEP offers a suite of English proficiency assessment tools used for admissions, placement, progress evaluation and more by over 750 colleges, universities, and private high schools throughout North America and the world. iTEP also serves companies such as Microsoft, IBM, and McDonald’s with its iTEP Business exam. iTEP’s proven test content and structure–which assesses grammar, reading, listening, speaking and writing skills in 90 minutes–will be used in the co-branded ACEI iTEP Business exam. iTEP exams can be scheduled on-demand by contacting iTEP test centers located in 51 countries around the world.

“ACEI’s commitment to providing timely data their partner companies and institutions can easily comprehend and apply is perfectly in line with our own mission to offer English testing that is at once convenient, accurate, and comprehensive,” says iTEP International Chairman Perry Akins.
