Why is Pipplet better than a face-to-face language proficiency interview?

Improved Reliability

Pipplet uses an asynchronous interview app: the examiner and the test taker are not online at the same time. This helps ensure strict control of the assessment protocol for test takers. Everyone gets an objective input. Examiners are given access to audio recordings without the interference of social cues, allowing a pinpoint focus on language skills. This improves the test reliability dramatically, and ensures fairness and objectivity to the test takers.

Improved Validity

Face-to-face interviews put considerable cognitive stress on the language examiner because it requires multi-tasking to manage all aspects of the interview process. Therefore, making it difficult to get a precise assessment against specific criteria. With the Pipplet app, the examiner can replay oral productions as many times as necessary. It improves the accuracy of the assessment especially when using specific criteria like pronunciation, grammar, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you differentiate from classic tests like the TOEIC or the BULATS?

Our process is entirely online and on-demand. Candidates don’t have to travel or schedule a time to take the test. Moreover, the digitalization of the test and assessment process allows us to offer a complete assessment, including speaking and writing productive skills, for the price of a partial test that assesses only reading and listening.

Are your grades comparable with other test grades?

Most language proficiency tests are based on the European referential CEFR, or give a corresponding scale. The Pipplet test uses the CEFR scale, so grades are easily comparable with other tests grades. However, it is important to keep in mind that the Pipplet test assesses productive skills that are often overlooked by other tests. Depending on the candidate, this can cause a significant difference in the grade obtained.

How do you recruit your examiners?

We enforce a strict selection criteria on our examiners. They have to be native speakers of the language they assess, be educated as linguists or language teachers, have more than 5 years of experience with teaching, and a perfect knowledge of CEFR principles. They are then selected based on their ability to deliver a precise and constant assessment, based on control samples. A continuous check is also in place to ensure the quality of their assessment is thoroughly maintained.

What languages do you assess?

As of now we assess the following languages:
English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Modern Standard Arabic and Russian.
If you are looking to assess a language that is not included in this list, please let us know. We are able and willing to incorporate new languages if need be.

Can you assess on specific topics?

We have a bank of questions on various topics such as: customer service, consulting, finance, law, health, engineering, and more. We can construct tests from these questions to best reflect the context in which the language assessed will be used.
