Assessment

Student performance is measured through tests, writing samples, homework, classroom participation and ongoing teacher and self-evaluations. Students who show satisfactory progress and attend at least 80% of classes receive a certificate of completion. Levels at ILI are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Students in University Pathways Program receive a recommendation for an ILI Partner School upon achieving competency in B2 CEFR, which correlates approximately to TOEFL iBT 80+ and IELTS 6.5+.
