AUBH offers Cambridge Assessment Testing online

MANAMA, May 18, 2020

The American University of Bahrain (AUBH), an official Cambridge Assessment Centre for English language testing, has opened proficiency testing online to the kingdom.
The announcement has come as a response to the widespread cancellation of English proficiency tests. The testing will take place on Proctor-U, AUBH’s online AI-enabled, proctoring platform. Proctor-U, solely adopted by AUBH in the kingdom and used by respected institutions worldwide, protects the integrity and credibility of high-stakes exams.
Dr. Mark D. Shermis, AUBH Provost, commented: “Amidst the widespread cancellation of international English proficiency tests; students, employers and institutions in Bahrain still urgently need these assessments. Being a recognised Linguaskill testing centre, it was important for us to bridge our capabilities with the technology we already have in place: namely AI-enabled ProctorU. This globally recognised technology will ensure the continuation of English language asssessment while also garunteeing the integrity of results.”
Drawing on over 100 years of research, Cambridge Assessment exams are trusted as secure English tests by governments worldwide. Linguaskill results are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability. Cambridge qualifications are internationally accepted as the highest quality mark in English language assessment.
AUBH offers programmes in Colleges of Business and Management, Engineering, and Architecture and Design. AUBH’s purpose-built campus in Riffa is a second home to a new calibre of students, nurtured and mentored by hand-picked faculty with the best international and local expertise. As the first American-style University in Bahrain, AUBH takes a unique approach to learning, going beyond imparting knowledge to giving students access to real world scenarios and practical case-based learning. - TradeArabia News Service
