In January 2013, CSIET (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel) endorsed the ELTiS as the preferred English language proficiency test for the youth exchange community. CSIET endorsed the ELTiS for the following reasons:

  • Ballard & Tighe is a reputable publisher of testing materials with over 35 years’ experience in the industry. The IPT Family of Tests by Ballard & Tighe is one the most widely used and trusted language proficiency tests for English learners in the United States and internationally.
  • The ELTiS is easily administered without compromising test security.
  • The ELTiS is cost-effective.
  • The ELTiS provides a strong indicator of an international student’s ability to manage the language demands of an American school classroom.
