New biometric technology for global English testing
from University World News
IELTS, the International English Language Testing System and the world's most popular English language test for higher education, has introduced biometric measures — including finger scans — to verify the identity of test takers. Worldwide, more than 8,000 education institutions, governments, professional registration bodies and employers use IELTS to provide measurement of English language proficiency. Candidates are tested on listening, reading, writing and speaking. All tests are scored on a banded system from one (the lowest) through to nine (the highest).
