At the University of Essex I used Password English directed tasks to screen around 1, students each year on arrival.
This enabled the University to quickly identify non-native English speaking students who were unexpectedly weak at English and intervene effectively. Since then, at the University of Leicester and now The Aga Khan University, I have used the tests in a number of ways, all benefiting from an assessment that offers great value and efficiency, providing accurate and reliable results.
Uses include supporting English language assessments for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as to pathway, pre-sessional and distance learning programmes.
I have also used Password for benchmarking purposes and to assess rates of progress while studying in an English medium environment. Being able to map the results against the CEFR [Common European Framework of Reference] means you can benchmark the Password scores with an international measure of language proficiency.
ELT is a great company to work with — flexible, innovative and with excellent customer support. The content is rigorous, valid and randomly generated and managing the system has proved simple with excellent customer support from the Password ELT Team.
From an academic point of view, the system offers a cohesive way to compare results to the CEFR and general English levels while the online writing tasks are varied and appropriate for academic school-level English. Within the school we have become far more efficient as Password means all of us in admissions and management can access results directly, reducing emails and phone calls on a day-to-day basis.
Password has given us a bespoke, professional and effective product that exceeded our expectations and meets our international admissions needs completely.
The Password journey started in the UK back in when, as a senior manager of Brunel University London, I was tasked with trebling the number of international students. One of the tools I needed to achieve this was a secure way of reliably assessing the English language capabilities of students applying to the University, particularly for the growing number of students joining pathway or pre-university programmes.
Whilst there was much interest in the idea, turning it into reality proved impossible. I therefore decided in to go it alone and with the help of some funding from the University of the Arts London began an amazing journey which has helped not only UK universities recruit and retain more international students but has given universities, colleges, schools and employers across the world accurate, reliable and secure English language and Maths tests which are used for more purposes than I could ever have dreamt of.
From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Password tests are now used in over countries around the world.
