This free English vocabulary test in PDF format may be used by teachers and schools to check a student’s English vocabulary level. The test is based on the Barton English Vocabulary Test, which students can take online here.
This test is five pages, with each page corresponding to a CEFR level. These levels are as follows:
- A2: Elementary
- B1: Intermediate
- B2: Upper-Intermediate
- C1: Advanced
- C2: Proficient
Each level has 15 questions. The difficulty of each word was determined by the English Vocabulary Profile (EVP) for levels A2-B2 and the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) for the final levels.
