A Canadian English Language Test
The Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Assessment is a test designed to measure the English language proficiency of students planning to study in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
The CAEL Assessment is one of the best tools for identifying students with the right English skills for academic success. It provides an authentic representation of language use in a Canadian academic context. Test takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions, and write a short essay, as they would be expected to do in a first-year Canadian university or college classroom.
Paragon Testing Enterprises, a subsidiary of The University of British Columbia, acquired the CAEL Assessment from Carleton University in June 2015. Paragon has become Canada’s leading English language testing organization and is committed to developing tests that meet the highest quality standards in the field.
