A nossa missão

Our constitution sets out our mission. In practice, we include the following aims in what we do:

  • establish quality standards and principles of good practice for all stages of the language testing process;
  • promote transnational recognition of language certification;
  • improve the quality of language assessment through joint projects, sharing best practice, and the work of special interest groups
  • provide training and enhance assessment literacy among language professionals and the wider community;
  • raise awareness of issues relating to language testing through regular meetings;
  • promote the benefits of plurilingualism/multilingualism and language learning;
  • provide thought leadership through international conferences;
  • achieve positive impact on educational processes and on society in general.

These are often broken down into three overarching areas: Setting Standards, Sustaining Diversity and Maximising Impact:
