Based on research and best practices for language assessment, the DEPA® accurately identifies a learner’s English proficiency level.
No advanced scheduling required—learners can take the DEPA® at any time in the comfort of their own homes or at work.
The DEPA® is aligned with global standards such as the CEFR and GSE, and can predict results on common tests such as the TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC and PTE.
The DEPA® takes 30 to 60 minutes and assesses English proficiency in four key skill areas: Speaking Reading Grammar Listening
The DEPA® features an optional speaking section that allows learners to submit audio recordings of their responses to oral and written prompts, which are then graded by our certified English assessment specialists. Through a combination of cutting-edge technology and human expertise, the DEPA® is convenient to take from home while maintaining the accuracy of an in-person interview.
This feature is only available as a bonus included in the 12-month package.
Because the DEPA® shares many similarities with internationally recognized standardized tests such as the TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC and PTE, it can be used to predict how your learners will perform on those tests. The Digi English Research and Assessment Team has analyzed the results of more than 50,000 test takers to accurately calibrate the DEPA® to align with multiple proficiency scales and global standards such as the CEFR.
