The Language Proficiency Index (LPI) is an academic reading and writing test that measures English language proficiency at the pre-university or pre-college level. The test is paper-delivered and consists of the following four parts:
- identifying errors in sentence structure
- identifying errors in English usage
- evaluating and/or summarizing short prose passages
- writing an argumentative essay
Many post-secondary institutions in British Columbia and other parts of Canada, as well as a host of BC professional organizations use LPI scores for placement in educational/professional programs or for employment.
