O SELO Q E O SISTEMA DE AUDITORIA DA ALTE

Find out which tests have the ALTE Q-Mark

The ALTE Framework shows whether an exam of our member organisations has the Q-Mark, following a successful audit. It also allows comparison using the CEFR levels of the different tests in different languages.

The ALTE Q-mark is a quality indicator which member organisations can use to show that their exams have passed a rigorous ALTE audit and meet all the core requirements of ALTE's 18 quality standards. The Q-mark demonstrates that ALTE member organisations aspire to consistent standards of quality and excellence in their exams.

O Selo Q indica que o perfil de qualidade de um exame ou conjunto de exames foi auditado por um auditor da ALTE e o resultado foi positivo. O resultado é valido por um período de cinco anos ou até que haja uma mudança significativa no argumento de validade para exames auditados com sucesso.O Selo Q é atribuído apenas ao(s) exame(s) auditados, não à organização em si.

O Selo Q permite aos utilizadores de testes estarem seguros de que um exame é sustentado por processos, critérios e padrões adequados.

Only the exams of ALTE members and applicant ALTE Associate Members, meeting certain criteria, can undertake an ALTE audit process.

Procedimentos de Auditoria

The PfA (latest version - April 2022) was produced by the Grupo de Trabalho do SGQ and contains all the detailed procedures for auditors and for organisations being audited. 


Grupo de Trabalho SGQ da ALTE

The ALTE QMS WG reviews and edits the audit procedures. Members of the QMS WG meet usually three times per year, and work in close collaboration with the Standing Committee to discuss and improve current procedures.

Padrões mínimos da ALTE

ALTE has established a set of 18 common standards for its members’ exams, which cover all stages of the language testing process, and are used in the Q-Mark audit process. These involve: 

  • construção de testes; 
  • administração e logística; 
  • classificação e nivelamento; 
  • análise de testes; 
  • comunicação com partes interessadas.

Como consequência, os utilizadores de exames - sejam privados, empregadores, instituições educativas ou órgãos governamentais - estão seguros de que os testes de línguas criados e distribuídos por membros da ALTE atendem a padrões profissionais rigorosos e refletem com precisão as competências dos examinandos.
