We’ve worked with quite a few professionals,
here’s what they have to say…

Our international student program has been using the CMGE EAL online assessment platform for 3 years, with great success! The assessment is user-friendly and easy to administer to any sized group.  As a small, rural program with no designated EAL department, our English Department staff greatly appreciates the data I can share with them that saves valuable time and provides them with the information they need to successfully program for the EAL students in their classrooms.

I have also shared assessment results with agents & natural parents at the start of the school year and then again, upon departure, and the feedback has always been fantastic!  Parents and students are always pleased to have some tangible evidence of progress and growth throughout their time with us.

The team at CMGE go above and beyond to provide an extraordinary level of support to their clients.  Whether it’s offering up sample activities to try in my language labs, providing tech support while the assessments are running or making suggestions on best practices for how to implement their many, useful online resources, these folks are there for you, 100%, no matter the size of the program.  They have always made me feel like a valued customer and I in turn, value their extensive knowledge and experience in the field of English language acquisition!

The Richmond International Student Program has been using the CM Global English ELL assessment tool for a number of years. We tried the assessment on a test basis and eventually included both our short-term and long-term international students. We now use it for all of our school district’s in-coming students and are extremely pleased with the product. With instant test results provided, we can immediately do course planning and know with confidence, that our students are placed in courses where opportunities for success are best realized.

In developing the CM Global English assessment tool, our program was invited to participate in their product development – to test, to evaluate, and to provide feedback. We are thrilled with their assessment tool! We have been using it to assess G2 – G12 international students for some years. We have great confidence in CM Global English!
