Unsupervised Internet Test of Second Language Writing Skills - Test results

Test results are provided to the test-taker automatically following the completion of the test. Test results:

  • Will only be seen by the test-taker and will not be shared with the human resources advisor and/or hiring manager;
  • Are solely for applicant use and for anonymous research purposes;
  • Do not affect the applicant’s status in any job selection process for which they apply; and
  • Do not affect previous or future achieved levels on the statutory Second Language Evaluation (SLE) Test of Written Expression in the applicant's second official language.

There is no indication to the test-taker as to what rating level they received, such as A, B, C or E. Test-takers will receive feedback about whether they scored low, medium or high on the test. Those who receive a low score will be told that, if they maintain their current level of performance, then it is unlikely that they will pass the SLE Test of Written Expression in the Second Official Language at the intermediate (B) or advanced (C) level.

Applicants will still be required to take the statutory SLE test in their second official language if they apply to and are screened into bilingual imperative job opportunities.

What if the applicant fails the test?

There are no consequences. The results do not impact an application process. It is up to the candidate, based on the results of the test, to decide whether or not they wish to continue with their application for the position or withdraw from the process.

Applicants who have applied to and been screened in for bilingual job opportunities will still be required to write the statutory SLE test for each process if they do not have valid SLE test results that meet the language requirements of the job opportunity.
