The Michener English Language Assessment (MELA) measures English language proficiency based on communication that is typical in health care education or practice settings. The test is referenced to the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB), a Canadian framework for English language proficiency. MELA scores are used by post-secondary institutions and regulatory bodies as approved and acceptable demonstration of communicative competence to study or practice. Please note: A participant may only attempt the MELA test up to a maximum of 3 times.
Please visit www.themela.com for additional information and samples of the test.
