Note the Following:

  • Before experiencing the AAPPL, run the AAPPL 1.0 System Check on your computer.
  • All components require headphones or speakers.
  • For the ILS component, you will need a microphone.
  • For the PW component, you will need to change your keyboard to match the language in which you wish to write. You can use the same computer setting that is used for learning keyboarding skills in the target language. See the System Check link above for details on how to change your keyboard setting.
  • Your responses will not be stored or recorded.
  • To start an assessment, simply click on the "Sign In" button on the student login page to begin, you do not need a login or password.
  • If you quit and restart, you will return to the beginning, unlike the operational assessment where you’ll be taken back to where you left off.
  • Form A contains Novice- and Intermediate-level tasks and Form B contains Intermediate- and Advanced-level tasks.
  • The Arabic ILS has two versions depending if the test-taker is male or female.
  • The Chinese demonstration version contains Simplified Chinese only. The operational test allows for students to be assessed using Simplified or Traditional Chinese, depending on which test is ordered in the Student Registration and Reporting Form.
  • The ESL demonstration versions contain fewer tasks than the operational versions, and the ESL ILS demo sampler version contains tasks at all levels.
