High School Admissions

iTEP SLATE (Secondary Level Assessment Test of English) was specifically designed to evaluate the English proficiency of secondary-level students. It accomplished this through the use of adaptive content that is both challenging and age-appropriate. iTEP SLATE-Plus (our admissions test) evaluates grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking with score ranges from 0-6. All iTEP tests are aligned to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and deliver detailed score reports within 24 hours.


iTEP’s security measures are thorough. From prevention to post-assessment monitoring, we will ensure that all results submitted to partner institutions are an accurate portrayal of the applicant’s English abilities. To read about our full security measures click here.

"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.”

"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."
