What is the ACTFL Test of English Proficiency?

The ACTFL Test of English Proficiency (TEP) is a remotely proctored, four-skills English proficiency assessment that brings together three of ACTFL’s internationally recognized assessments (OPIc™, WPT™, L&Rcat™). The ACTFL TEP provides a valid and reliable measure of language proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening for use in college admissions decisions.
