Paragon Research Grants

Paragon Testing Enterprises is now accepting research grant applications for 2016.

Paragon Research Grants are intended to nurture research relationships between Paragon’s Test Research and Development unit and experts in the field of measurement and language assessment. The purpose of the collaboration is to contribute to:

  1. the collection of validity evidence for Paragon’s tests, and
  2. the development of new methods, approaches, and concepts that can advance the field of measurement and language assessment.

Paragon’s tests include the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) which consists of the CELPIP-General Test and the CELPIP-General LS Test, the Language Proficiency Index (LPI), and the Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Assessment.
