CAEL is a test designed to measure the English language proficiency of students planning to study in Canadian post-secondary institutions. CAEL test takers can demonstrate their language skills with this integrated test.

It provides an authentic representation of language use in a Canadian academic context. Test takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions, and write a short essay, as they would be expected to do in a first-year Canadian university or college classroom.
