Sponsors don’t need an iTEP account, proctors or staff. And, no test centers are needed. That’s because we use FotoSure® security technology.
You will receive the student’s registration information, scores and score report to upload to your database. You will also have access to your own unique chart (like the one you can see here) that will help you accept and place the students.
Save hundreds of hours since Academic Language Solutions does all the work. Save on your budget. No training is necessary. No testing rooms are required either. iTEP is online and on-demand. We use FotoSure® technology for security. Student verification isn’t necessary because students register online with one form of Government ID (or your ID). No reason to oversee any testing or maintain a secure environment.

In addition to a high speed Internet connection, the student will need access to a laptop computer or a desktop computer. The computer will need to have a microphone and camera attached. The test will check compatibility with the Browser, Internet connection and will test the levels on the microphone and will check the camera before the actual test begins.
iTEP Conversation is a 100% verbal test. There are 8 questions, and all 8 answers are spoken into the microphone. A global bank of ESL professionals, all trained on how to grade this specific and unique test pull tests from the cloud and grade them. This normally takes 24 hours, but can take up to 72 hours based on the volume of tests being graded and the number of graders available at any given time.
This keeps the scoring consistent and grades are based on real people, not machines. Each grader is “calibrated” every 3 months so all tests are graded equally.
