European Association for Language Testing and Assessment

European Association for Language Testing and Assessment (EALTA) is a professional association for language testers in Europe. EALTA's interests are independent of those of any other organization. EALTA was set up with financial support from the European Community. EALTA is a non-profit organization and its activities do not generate incomes.

Mission Statement

The purpose of EALTA is to promote the understanding of theoretical principles of language testing and assessment, and the improvement and sharing of testing and assessment practices throughout Europe


Europe is a multilingual continent, where the diversity of languages, cultures and traditions is highly valued. Part of such diversity is diversity in education systems and assessment traditions and values.

EALTA statement

Europe is a place where the rights of all - those living here and those still to arrive - are respected. It is a continent where the diversity of languages and cultures is an inherent constituent of our heritage and reality and is highly valued.
