Developed in collaboration with a leading educational institution in the Arabic speaking world, the Avant APT is adaptive and designed to measure the real world proficiency levels in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).
The test is primarily designed for students who are being educated in English-medium international schools. Schools that deliver the APT use the data to refocus their curricula.
Schools also introduce professional development to hone their teachers’ ability to deliver improved outcomes. By using the Avant APT to measure 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.
