The CLOE FLE in a nutshell
The CLOE examination is a 1h10 online assessment of written language proficiency and a remote oral evaluation.
The written section of the examination relies on a database of over 700 calibrated questions according to the CEFR framework (A1 to C2), with variations for each sub-level (A1-, A1, A1+,..). The test is adaptive, meaning that questions are presented to the candidate based on an algorithm and their responses.
For the oral part, the jury uses a questioning tool (standard questions, texts, and situational scenarios) to assess the candidate's ability to communicate verbally.
Designed for A2 to C2 levels
