Language Proficiency Assessment

Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA)

Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA)Is your organization properly skilled and ready to assess the language proficiency of your employees? 

Are you sure your employees can represent the business accurately while using a second language?
Wouldn't it be a great to test the language skills of your prospective new or existing employees before determining if you should pay them extra wages for their language knowledge and effectiveness?

Mile High Multilingual Services can help reduce the risks or conflicts due to miscommunication regarding language proficiency. A language proficiency assessment (LPA) is a reference measurement that provides definitive feedback regarding a person’s level of achievement or proficiency in another language. It's a fantastic way for organizations to standarize staff capabilities and protect everyone from improper translations that can result in saftey issues, lost time and thousands of dollars in mistakes.

We can develop your customized language assessment based on:

  • Your job position’s minimum qualifications (Manager, Entry-Level, Executive, etc.)
  • Specific duties, required descriptive skills, common phrases and problem-solving situations
  • Industry specific jargon, uncommonly used phrases and technical terms
  • Written and oral requirements 

Participants in the LPA process are evaluated on two key critera:

  • Achievement: how well a participant performs against your customized objectives of the assessment
  • Proficiency: the participant’s ability to communicate accurately in a defined area of a specific language
