What is the ALCPT?

ALCPT is an English language test designed to measure English ability levels through listening and reading. For more information, see the ALCPT Handbook.

Uses of the ALCPT
ALCPTs are not intended to be used as an ECL practice or preparation tool or for promotion or bonus purposes. ALCPTs are intended to be used for the following purposes only:

    1. placing students in an American Language Course (ALC) program;
    2. evaluating student progress midway and at the end of an ALC program;
    3. screening candidates for readiness to take the English Comprehension Level (ECL) test (with limited
        administrations per candidate –see ALCPT Handbook);
    4. evaluating the English language abilities of local personnel working for, or being considered for
        positions with, the military.

The ALCPT is a U. S. government language test used for these authorized purposes only; therefore, its sale must be approved by DLIELC Test & Measurement Branch.
