New partnership allows learners and professionals to test anytime, anywhere
Michigan Language Assessment, a joint venture between the University of Michigan and Cambridge Assessment English, today announced its partnership with Prometric, a global leader in technology-enabled testing and assessment solutions, to securely administer the Michigan English Test (MET) as an online, digital exam beginning this October.
By utilizing Prometric’s remote test-delivery platform ProProctor™ and its world-class secure testing network, Michigan Language Assessment will be able to offer people the opportunity to take the MET—a highly reliable assessment of English proficiency for educational and professional purposes —in their homes on any day of the year, from almost anywhere in the world.
But MET will not only be available at-home. Prometric’s vast global network of physical test centers also means that Michigan Language Assessment can offer the exam in countries and regions not previously serviced by Michigan Language Assessment’s existing network of authorized test centers.
“The partnership with Prometric is a big step in the evolution of our organization,” said Sharon Harvey, CEO of Michigan Language Assessment. “We’ve been providing secure, reliable, and trusted English exams for nearly seventy years; we’re committed to helping people achieve their education and career goals. With Prometric as a partner, we can continue to expand our global outreach by offering test takers, teachers, school administrators, and recognizing organizations throughout the world a secure, digital version of MET.”
Prometric, at the forefront of paving the assessment industry’s path forward with new solutions and innovation, ensures that people have reliable access to secure assessments anytime, anywhere. “Prometric is pleased to have been selected by Michigan Language Assessment to enhance the delivery capabilities of MET,” said Sean Burke, Prometric’s chief client officer. “We are proud to leverage our industry-leading test delivery solutions to bolster access for those seeking to advance their English language proficiency.”
