Are CaMLA test results suitable for making high-stakes educational and employment decisions?

Last Updated: Apr 01, 2015 04:14PM EDT
Yes. Our proficiency and certification tests are high-stakes tests administered in CaMLA–authorized test centers under strict security guidelines.
  • ​CaMLA exams are created by professional test developers
  • Detailed item and test form specifications are adhered to for each test 
  • Test items undergo a multistage review process, including a fairness/bias review and pretesting
  • Each administration of a CaMLA proficiency and certification exam (ECCE, ECPE, MELAB, MET, YLTE) uses a new test form with new test content
  • Statistical procedures are used to ensure that scores on all the forms of an exam are comparable, so that a score on an exam represents the same ability level no matter which form of the test was administered
  • ​Published reports provide stakeholders with information on test reliability and validity
