Natmal, in partnership with MetaMetrics released the E-LQ® Assessment, the first English Reading Comprehension Assessment in Korea, that reports a Lexile measure. The E-LQ Assessment allows Korean students to use Lexile measures to compare their English reading ability with native students in the U.S. and other English-speaking nations. E-LQ Assessment also stands out for its culturally adjusted test items and reading passages, taking into consideration the reality of English education in Korea conducted at the elementary, middle and high school level. In addition to providing the Lexile measure as the overall reading ability of the test taker, it also provides each test takers with the “field achievement” in his/hers reading ability, giving a separate assessment on the 4 field of content areas (literature, art & humanities, social science, and natural science) that were evenly incorporated into the assessment’s reading passages and items. The E-LQ Assessment is administered in five levels (Elementary Level, Pre-Intermediate Level, Intermediate Level, Post-Intermediate Level and Advanced Level) and is open to a wide range of applicants from fifth grade students to university students and the general public. The Assessment is administered in both the traditional offline method (PBT: Paper Based Test) and the computer based online method (CBT: Computer Based Test), and are appropriate for both individual and group administration settings.
