ALTE has established a set of common standards which cover all the stages of the language testing process. These standards can be applied to exams of any language, and ensure the quality of ALTE Members' examinations. The ALTE Q-Mark is awarded to those examinations which have gone through a successful audit. For more, see our Q-Mark page.
ALTE helps maximise tests' positive impact by making the connections between policy, research and practice, between language learning, teaching and assessment, and between experts in different fields and parts of the world.
