New second official language self-assessment tests (15-16)

2015-12-11

The Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC) has launched new self-assessment tests of written expression and reading comprehension. These tests were developed as part of a Blueprint 2020 pilot project conducted in partnership with the Translation Bureau of Public Services and Procurement Canada.  

These self-assessment tests offer candidates an indication of the proficiency level they may achieve on the official Second Language Evaluation (SLE) tests of written expression and reading comprehension. It is important to note that the results are not official and cannot be used in lieu of the PSC’s official SLE test results.

These self-assessment tests are currently available on the PSC Web site.

If you would like more information, please contact the Personnel Psychology Centre at cfp.cpp-ppc.psc@cfp-psc.gc.ca.
