Easy-to-understand report format

• your candidate’s Cambridge English Scale score for each skill tested – this allows you to quickly understand what your candidate’s level of English is

• your candidates’ Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) Level for each skill tested – the CEFR is the international benchmark for describing language ability – which means you can compare Linguaskill results to international standards

• an average Cambridge English Scale score and associated CEFR level, if more than one skill has been taken

• an explanation of what each score means in terms of English language ability – you can see where test takers have performed well, and where they can improve

• whether the candidate took the Business or General test.

You can also produce reports for individuals or groups, depending on your needs. You can produce a breakdown of scores by group and level, allowing easy comparison of ability across your whole organisation.
