Michigan English Language Assessment Battery

The University of Michigan-Dearborn is now offering the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB).

MELAB evaluates advanced-level English language competence of adult nonnative speakers of English. The MELAB is intended for:

  • Students applying to United States, Canadian, British, and other educational institutions where the language of instruction is English
  • Professionals who need English for work or training purposes
  • Anyone interested in obtaining a general assessment of their English language proficiency for educational or employment opportunities

The MELAB is a secure test battery and is administered only by authorized official examiners in the United States and Canada. Many educational institutions in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and other countries accept the MELAB as an alternative to the TOEFL.
