Oxford University Press Placement Test

Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT) is an Oxford University ESL Placement Test with CEFR scoring.

The Oxford English test combines convenience, reliability, instant reporting and the Oxford reputation, all at a low cost. This test can usually be taken within 3 business day of purchase. It is very reliable and provides official results indexed to the CEFR. Although this test does not evaluate speaking and writing, we like this test a lot. It can be done by anyone, anywhere. It is perfect for anyone who cannot go to a test center. The English Center offers the test as well as private test preparation courses.

The Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT) helps place test takers in an appropriate level language course and is used as a quick, accurate measure of a test taker’s language ability.

Corporate training companies use this test to decide what level of training employees need, and human resources departments use it to check the English level of employees. It is also used by some schools and universities. Note: It does not generally replace the IELTS or TOEIC for university admission.

What skills does the OOPT test?

The test is divided into two sections, both of which are required. The sections are called “Use of English” and “Listening.”

Part 1. Use of English. About 30 questions. Choose American or British English. Or a mix.

This part of the test evaluates your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary, for example, how well you know tenses, or which word would be correct in a sentence. It also assesses how well you understand what you have read and the meaning of the text.You have to read and answer multiple choice and gap fill questions.

Part 2. Listening. About 15 Questions.

This section uses audio to test your understanding of what you hear. You can choose 100% American English, all British English, or a 50/50 mix. Test takers can play the audio twice if they like.

Questions are instantly marked and appear for the school. We see CEFR level, score out of 120 and time taken. The scores are separated between the 2 sections. We download an official OOPT results card PDF and email it to you. That is the official record of your test.
