About Avant APT
in Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking

The Avant Arabic Proficiency Test (APT) is a monolingual language proficiency test in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) created for native Arabic Speakers who need to function effectively in the Arabic speaking world. By using the Avant APT to measure their students’ proficiency levels, schools can assure all stakeholders, including parents and local education ministries, that their students are graduating with high levels of Arabic proficiency. The APT is available in three grade bands: 3-5, 6-8, and 9-Adult.

Avant developed the APT for native Arabic speakers with the same rigorous standards and assessment philosophy as Avant STAMP. The APT measures real-world proficiency and allows students to demonstrate their actual skills. Developed in collaboration with a leading educational institution in the Arabic speaking world, the APT is adaptive and designed to measure the real world proficiency levels in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) of students who are being educated in English-medium international schools. Schools that deliver the APT use the data to refocus their curricula and introduce professional development to hone their teachers’ ability to deliver improved outcomes.
