Wellspring is proud to offer you the opportunity to take the WebCAPE free of charge. WebCAPE is an online tool that assesses language skills of students. It is a very useful instrument if you are trying to increase your English skills before you take an English proficience exam, such as the TOEFL, as an admissions requirement for U.S. colleges and universities.
WebCAPE was developed by Brigham Young University and is required of all international students by over 400 universities in the United States.
This assessment in divided into 3 sections:
- Grammatical English skills
- Written English skills
- Oral English skills
The program increases or decreases the difficulty of questions presented to students based on the answers given. Through this leveled approach, a good understanding of the skill level of the student is achieved.
WebCAPE is not a replacement to the TOEFL. These schools all required the TOEFL as well. The WebCAPE is used in addition to the TOEFL to assess your English proficiency and to determine the appropriate level of English as a Second Langauge support (ESL Support) that will be required if you are accepted and chose to enroll.
