b-TEA is an online, multiple-choice test which assesses a candidate's English ability for benchmarking / diagnostic purposes. The test assesses a candidate's knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and listening comprehension skills. It does not attempt to assess a candidate's spoken English.This means that it cannot be used for licensing purposes but it can be a simple, cheap and fast way of assessing a large number of people in order to determine their training needs. Mayflower College has tested a number of aviation specialists with both this Benchmark Test (b-TEA) and the full TEA test - the results of this research indicate an acceptable correlation between the two tests. We are therefore able to conclude that a score of x on the Benchmark Test (b-TEA) is equivalent to a score of y on the ICAO language proficiency scale.
