LTI language proficiency exams assess one or more skills for listening, speaking, reading, and/or writing in the language tested. Most exams are conducted on a computer using a Windows 10 simulated keyboard for the language tested, but a paper exam is available for the WPT or BWT. The OPIc exam is conducted on a computer using AVATAR software. English proficiency exams will use the standard QWERTY physical keyboard. Depending on the exam, you may be using a headphone with microphone to listen and/or provide spoken responses. Languages available for each exam varies.
