The English Language Testing Society announced its official launch on February 18, hoping to become the “leading advocate for excellence in English language testing”.

A community of assessment specialists, test developers, language teachers, program administrators, and all other stakeholders interested best practices related to English language testing, the organisation hopes to raise awareness for best practice in English language testing, according to ELTS president Eddy White.

“ELTS will work to advance, improve, promote and develop a wider understanding of guidelines and best practices for language assessment systems”

ELTS is to advocate for excellence in English language testing “throughout the world”, while also advancing improvement and promoting the English language testing profession.

Membership is open to those new to the field as well as long time professionals, and anyone who joins before March 20 will be classified as the “founding members”.

With a strong dedication for promoting English language testing at a high standard, ELTS has an international mix of members on their board of trustees.

“We are very excited to launch this new society. ELTS will work to advance, improve, promote and develop a wider understanding of guidelines and best practices for language assessment systems worldwide,” explained White.
