The G-TELP Writing Test is an Assessment Tool Specifically Designed to Measure the
English Writing Proficiency of Nonnative Speakers of English
The G-TELP Writing Test assesses the facility and proficiency of non-native English speakers in communicating in written English.
It is a highly useful writing test in that:
It closely approximates a measure of communicative competence in writing because it simulates real-world situations.
It is a measure of general English language writing proficiency, rather than being specifically geared to academic or business contexts (e.g., for academic study in institutions of higher education in North America).
Its criteria are derived from experience regarding the acquisition of English language writing skills by non-native speakers, regardless of any particular cultural context or specific testing purpose.
