Executives, diplomats, directors, and schools joined us on May 29, 2018, in Lima, Peru, to launch MET Go! This new, secure test is designed specifically for teens and will be available for centers to administer—on dates they choose—beginning in November 2018.

The event began with an opening statement by Matthew Poole, commercial attaché of the U.S. Embassy in Peru. He spoke of our long-shared history, beginning when the U.S. State Department commissioned the University of Michigan to develop an English language test. To meet this need, the ECPE, our secure level C2 exam, was launched in 1954 and administered internationally. Mr. Poole was very optimistic about the future of MET Go! in Latin America. “Our long relationship proves that Michigan tests are of the highest quality and comply with standards that the State Department requests for English language testing. We are sure this new test, MET Go! will also be successful,” he said.

Sharon Harvey, CEO of Michigan Language Assessment, provided an introduction to MET Go! She noted that most classrooms have students at different levels of English, and MET Go! provides all students in the classroom with the opportunity to prove their English language achievement. It is also an excellent preparation for the MET, one of the leading English language assessments in Peru. Another key highlight Sharon shared is that with the addition of MET Go!, Michigan Language Assessment can now provide tests for every step on a language learner’s journey.
