The CM Global English Assessment

Your students deserve a quality assessment that maximizes their opportunity for learning success. CM Global English (CMGE) is an accurate, reliable, easy-to-use, B2B and B2G solution for your English (ELL/ESL/EAL) assessment needs. It is a comprehensive set of  measures designed for your International and ELL students in K to 12 Schools, and in Adult Continuing Education.

The CMGE assessment authentically captures a snapshot in time of your students’ English language abilities.  Assessment results are instantly available and securely stored on Canadian servers. The CMGE assessment provides valuable information for supporting your students’ academic needs.

The CMGE assessment can be used as part of the welcoming process for new students. And because it is consistently accurate, it can be used as an annual measurement of English acquisition for future instructional support.

The assessment is very easy to use, for both the student and the administrator. Results are instant. The assessment has four parts:

English Usage

Knowledge of Standard English semantics, lexicon, and grammar is assessed. Such knowledge is an indication of prior exposure to formal and informal English.


Reading comprehension in English is assessed, using fiction and non-fiction passages, each within a range of readability difficulty. The assessment provides a measure of syntactical understanding to navigate and comprehend age appropriate, English text.


English listening comprehension is measured by responding to oral questions, statements, and  commands  of increasing difficulty. Components are based on realistic scenarios encountered in daily social and classroom life.


A writing sample is created on a randomly selected, familiar topic. The selection of topics changes according to the student (Primary, Middle School, Secondary, or Continuing Education).
