Michigan English Test Goes Global

Michigan Language Assessment launched MET Digital to provide test takers and accepting institutions with global access to a Michigan certificate of English proficiency

Michigan Language Assessment has launched their digital Michigan English Test (MET), a secure, affordable testing solution meeting the evolving needs of global test takers and accepting institutions. MET Digital is now available most days of the year, nearly anywhere in the world, at authorized test centers and from home.

To address the challenges posed by the pandemic, different stakeholders emphasized the importance of increased flexibility and access. In addition to meeting these needs, MET Digital also follows high standards of test security, validity, and reliability.

“A lot of research has been conducted on the MET since its initial launch more than a decade ago. That research provides strong evidence on the validity and reliability of the test, so test users can depend on the outcomes from the test,” said Gad Lim, PhD, director of assessment at Michigan Language Assessment.

MET Digital makes it possible for an even larger population of world language speakers to take a secure English proficiency exam trusted by universities, professional boards, governments, and other recognizing organizations across the globe. Test results are securely accessed through the Michigan Language Assessment Portal, typically within five days.

MET Digital offers a unique feature to improve test taker experience and results. Test takers who feel their performance does not adequately reflect their skills can now choose to retake one of three sections of the four-skill MET Digital when they receive their initial results, reducing stress and expenses to meet their certification requirements. The highest of the two scores is listed on the final report with an indicator to show the retaken section.
