What is an Examination Battery?

Students often ask: What is a test battery?

“Battery” means that an examination consists of various components.

The Michigan batteries are as follows:



ECPE – Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English

Two of the Cambridge Michigan exams are actually called batteries.

First of all, there is the Michigan Battery.

This set of exams has two components: the MTELP and the Test of Aural Comprehension.

There is also the MELAB, which is the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery, which consists of reading, writing, speaking, and listening components.

In fact, the other Michigan examinations are also test batteries because they also have reading, writing, speaking, and listening components.

However, the other examinations do not have the word “battery” in their names.
