Past, Present & Future

Past – Originating from the UK and ASIA, Examagram has been created by a group of IT and recruitment professionals, with over 20 years of experience in both industries. Born from a frustration with the expense and poor standard of existing online English testing tools, Examagram was created to assist with the recruitment of candidates in predominantly non-native English speaking countries. It has since grown from a tool for personal use into one available globally and used in many countries worldwide.

Present – Examagram is used in many countries throughout the world and can be accessed in any country. Investment and Donations are provided by HR & Recruitment professionals in order to provide Businesses and Recruiters alike a free online English testing service that can offer real time analysis to its users across the globe.

Future – We are currently developing a Free Numeracy test for users.We have plans to extend the test to other languages including Mandarin and Spanish testing, as well as adding other core. Online English testing is only the beginning! We aim to improve the standard of online testing while helping our clients drive down their recruitment costs. We need you to continue to use the service and help us spread the word by recommending us to your colleagues and clients – even your family and friends.

Can’t I just phone the candidates to test their level of English?

A phone call can only test the verbal and listening skills of a candidate, and it is very difficult to arrive at an accurate assessment of these, particularly when trying to compare one candidate against another.  Examagram tackles the reading and writing aspects of language, focusing on accurately and consistently assessing grammar and vocabulary.

Examagram can be used to pre-screen candidates before contacting them. For example, from 30 applicants, you may only want to talk to 10. Examagram can assist you in compiling this shortened list. No matter how you plan to use Examagram, it is 100% free.

The test is written in correlation with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. (CEFR) Can I know more about this?

Yes, The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment which is also known as CEFR for short, is set of guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and in other parts of the world such as South America and Asia.

The CEFR was put together by the council of Europe as the main part of the project “Language Learning for European Citizenship”. The CEFR’s main objective is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which can be applied to all languages across Europe including English. The European Union Council Resolution recommend using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels are widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.

Examagram is written in conjunction with these 6 levels and uses these levels to score and give analysis to on each test. The test covers the reading and writing aspects of language testing.

The 6 levels are derived from 3 categories:

A Basic User

B Independent User

C Proficient User

The 6 levels are listed below:

A1 Breakthrough or beginner

A2 Way stage or elementary

B1 Threshold or intermediate

B2 Vantage or upper intermediate

C Proficient User

C1 Effective Operational Proficiency or advanced

C2 Mastery or proficiency

If you want to find out more about this we would advise to visit the website for the council of Europe.

http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/education/elp/ELP-REG/CEFR_EN.asp

Or go to the CEFR homepage – http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/linguistic/CADRE1_EN.asp

Can you tell me more about the 6 levels and the Examagram scoring system?

On completing a test a user will be awarded an Examagram score which is a number out of 1000.

This number can be translated into a CEFR level as detailed below, as well as providing additional granularity as to the position of the candidate within the level.

Grade Description
A1 CEFR Level: A1 Breakthrough or beginner
Examagram Score: 143 – 245
At the very basic level the candidate can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of basic needs of communicating with the person. They can understand some simple notices and signs and can fill out simple forms.  They will be able to introduce themselves and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where they live, people they know and things they have. They will also be able to interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help. However, users rely heavily on gestures, symbols and other visual stimuli to aid understanding which will put the person at a disadvantage if their position requires a lot of phone work. It is very likely that they would need additional training in the work place if it is a requirement to converse regularly in English.
If the Examagram score was closer to 143 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 245 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
A2 CEFR Level: A2 Way stage or elementary
Examagram score: 246 – 428
At this level, the candidate understands sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). They will be able to communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar matters. The candidate will also be able to describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need. They will understand the most commonly-used English vocabulary and be able to form simple sentences and questions, but will struggle to form or understand long or complex sentences. It is likely that the candidates at this level will need additional training if they are required to use the English language on a regular basis. Phone or group discussions will be difficult for this candidate.
If the Examagram score was closer to 246 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 428 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
B1 CEFR Level: B1 Threshold or intermediate
Examagram Score: 429 – 571
At the lower intermediate level, the candidate can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. They can deal most situations likely to arise while travelling in an area where the language is spoken. They are able to produce simple connected text on topics that are familiar or of personal interest. They will also be able to describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans. However, they will struggle to engage in conversations about more abstract topics. They will be able to understand simple texts, but will require guidance to understand authentic texts. It is expected that candidates at this level would be functional in their role (assuming that the English language is not fundamental to the role) but will require flexibility in their English communication from other colleagues.
If the Examagram score was closer to 429 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 571 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
B2 CEFR Level: B2 Vantage or upper intermediate 
Examagram score: 572 – 714
At the upper intermediate level, the candidate can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete (practical) and abstract topics, including technical discussions in their field of specialisation. They can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. They will be able to produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.  However, their limited vocabulary and exposure to authentic English means they may be unable to catch finer details with regards to tone and implied meaning. It is expected that candidates at this level will be able to perform in the work place and their level of English should not heavily prohibit their ability to do their work. Occasionally, when working with groups of conversed native English speakers, the candidate may seek clarification on work meaning and on occasions they may struggle if the pace of conversation is very fast.
If the Examagram score was closer to 572 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 714 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
C1 CEFR Level: C1 Effective Operational Proficiency or advanced
Examagram Score:  715 – 857
At this advanced level the candidate can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. They can express ideas fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Their use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. They will be able to produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.  Only when exposed to heavy accents and idiomatic language will the user struggle to understand. It is unlikely that the candidate will ever need assistance when talking in the English language. Their English competence is very high and in some cases they may even sound like a native English speaker.
If the Examagram score was closer to 715 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 857 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
C2 CEFR Level: C2 Mastery or proficiency
Examagram Score: 858 – 1000
At the top level the candidate can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. They will be able to summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. They will be able to express themselves spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in the most complex situations.  They will understand a vast number of idiomatic phrases, recognise the implications and tone behind their usage and be able to use them correctly according to the social setting. In many cases, candidates at this level will sound like a native English speaker and will have the vocabulary and grammatical skills to match. Some native English speakers may not achieve this level.
If the Examagram score was closer to 858 it means that the candidate is at the lower end of this CEFR level. If their Examagram score is closer to 1000 then they were at the top end of the CEFR level.
