University of Michigan Examinations

The University of Michigan

There are many ways to describe a great University: its top-ranked degree programs, its libraries, laboratories and research facilities, and its internationally eminent faculty. The University of Michigan, endowed with these resources, consistently ranks among the top public universities in the United States.

Numbers of the University’s operations are equally impressive: 28 schools and colleges in the State of Michigan; 571 major buildings; more than 8.5 million library volumes; more than 6,000 regular faculty members; about 58,000 students (Fall 2010); more than 4 billionEuros total revenue for operating activities (2009-2010).

The English Language Institute

Producing tests to exacting standards presupposes a great deal of research and expertise in testing and advanced technological infrastructure. As part of one of the world’s leading research Universities, the English Language Institute (ELI), itself a world leader in English-language testing, is uniquely positioned to meet this challenge.

Founded in 1941, the ELI was the first English language research and training entity of its kind in the United States. Today, with the same commitment to academic excellence, the same rigorous application of the methods of scientific inquiry and the same dedication to the principles of equity and accessibility, the ELI continues to be recognized worldwide as a principal center of language teaching, learning, assessment, applied linguistics research, and teacher education.

Michigan Language Assessment

In Fall 2010, the University of Michigan and the University of Cambridge, both institutions with a long and distinguished history in of language assessment, teaching, and research, agreed to collaborate in the field of testing and created a new non-profit entity called Cambridge Michigan Language Assessments (CaMLA).

In Spring 2018, CaMLA announced its new name and look as Michigan Language Assessment.

Michigan Language Assessment continues as a joint venture between Cambridge Assessment English and the University of Michigan, developing outstanding English language tests and offering a comprehensive and flexible set of the highest-quality products and services to help educational, governmental, and private-sector institutions meet their language-assessment needs.
