ECCE is an English language proficiency test at an intermediate level that emphasizes communicative use of English rather than a formalistic knowledge of English, and it is aimed at students who are able to function and perform communicative transactions in all four skill areas of the language (speaking, listening, reading, writing).
- Speaking; a structured oral interaction using picture prompts (15 minutes)
- Listening; short conversations followed by a question with pictured answer choices and extended talk that has been broken down into segments (30 minutes)
- Grammar, vocabulary, reading; three parts, multiple-choice, 100 items (80 minutes)
- Writing; printed prompt followed by a choice of letter or essay response (30 minutes)
Fail, low pass, pass, high pass
