The Hellenic American University Assessment Board for Language Examinations: Level B2 (ABLE B2) is a standardized examination designed for candidates who wish to obtain certification of their competency in English as a second or other language at an intermediate level. ABLE B2 is aimed at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CERF).
The ABLE B2 examination is developed and scored by the Hellenic American University in accordance with best practices in language assessment. All parts of the examination are written following specific guidelines and test specification. Items are pretested to ensure the validity and reliability of the examination. Care is taken that the tests are fair and accessible to all candidates.
The ABLE B2 examination tests communicative competence in all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as tasks which test grammatical resources. There is no separate vocabulary section, as vocabulary is tested through all tasks in all sections.
