Research: Linking CAEL CE Scores to IELTS-Academic Scores
The Canadian Academic English Language – Computer Edition test (CAEL CE) is designed to measure the English language proficiency of students planning to study in Canadian post-secondary institutions. This report summarizes the results of a study to compare test takers’ results on CAEL CE and the academic version of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS – Academic). For both tests, the overall score is the unweighted average of the four individual component scores: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. The purpose of this study was to identify which IELTS – Academic overall band score corresponds to each CAEL CE overall score.
