ISLPR testing in New Zealand

Posted by Kenina Ingram on October 15, 2018 at 2:55 PM

The ISLPR test is currently accepted by the New Zealand Teacher Registration Board. Why choose the ISLPR test? The ISLPR test is a personalised English test that focuses on your background and needs when formulating the content of the test. Each test is individually prepared by your tester to ensure the content is relevant to you e.g. a teacher might be asked in the writing test to write a letter to a parent explaining why their child was given detention.

Please note, as per the PPTC guidelines, candidates who choose to do their test interstate or overseas will incur an additional overseas testing fee. This is to cover the cost of sending a tester to your state/territory/country to conduct testing. All fees are shared evenly among candidates. Therefore, we encourage larger groups to be tested in order to split the fee more efficiently. Costs that are forwarded on to candidates can always be substantiated by invoices. We will always do our best to keep costs low. Once an invoice for interstate and overseas travel has been issued to a candidate, you may not amend or cancel your test. Rescheduling or cancelling your test will result in a fee equal to the value of the invoice being deducted from your test fee before consideration of a refund is made. For more information, read our PPTC Guidelines.

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
