Test Development

As the qualifications are regulated in the UK by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and Qualifications Wales, LanguageCert is required to follow structured processes and abide by strict criteria to ensure a fully standardised and consistent approach to the design and development of its qualifications.

To ensure ongoing adherence, LanguageCert has robust arrangements in place to continually quality assure its qualifications. This overall approach to the design and development, delivery and award of our qualifications ensures that the validity, reliability, rigour and security of LanguageCert’s qualifications remains consistent and standardised, regardless of where or how they are being offered.

For the delivery of its own qualifications, as well as for examinations delivered in collaboration with its partners, LanguageCert deploys state-of-the-art, innovative, flexible and secure exam administration technologies and systems developed by PeopleCert, which are tailor-made to each exam’s specific requirements.

LanguageCert has the knowledge and expertise to develop qualifications matching your organisation’s specific requirements.  When it comes to designing a test, one must ensure to leverage the right skills and expertise. So how do we do it?

Understanding what you’re testing

Every test is different, that’s why every test requires a test blueprint. Think of it as a design that focuses on the essence of your test. What is it that you’re trying to assess? Is it a particular skill? A technical competency? Academic knowledge or professional expertise?

Deciding on the format of your questions

Choosing the right type of questions can be as important as the questions themselves. Whether they are multiple-choice questions, essays, or anything in between, our test development experts can help you understand which format best suits your needs.

Delivering your content

Once your test is ready for delivery, it’s up to you how you would like it to have it delivered.
