In 1992, Language Testing International (LTI) was founded as a way to bring reliable proficiency testing to a wider audience, and so began our close partnership with the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Twenty-five years and almost three million assessments later, LTI is still proud to be the official testing office of ACTFL and the sole licensee of their assessments. Our goal remains the same – deliver valid and reliable language proficiency tests to the public – and here is how we have responded to the changing needs of our customers; expanded list of languages, remote proctoring services, task analysis and customization services. These days we do it at a scale and in ways facilitated by computer adapted technology and remote proctoring when appropriate, in markets such as K-12, Higher Education, Fortune 500 companies, state and local municipalities and the federal government. We couldn’t have imagined twenty-five years ago that we would be delivering over six hundred thousand tests annually!
