Re: PSC Tests Languages

You want to know about Public Service Commission Canada Qualification Standards in Relation to Official Languages so following is its information:

These qualification standards apply to positions requiring the use of both official languages – English and French. They define the levels of proficiency for each of the three language skills:
Written Comprehension in the Second Official Language
Written Expression in the Second Official Language
Oral Proficiency in the Second Official Language

Institutions also apply the following requirements:
Policy on Official Languages for Human Resources Management – for institutions subject to Parts IV, V and VI as well as section 91 of the Official Languages Act
Directive on the Staffing of Bilingual Positions – for institutions subject to the Public Service Employment Act
Directive on the Linguistic Identification of Positions or Functions for institutions subject to Schedules I and IV of the Financial Administration Act

There are two types of language qualifications for bilingual positions:
General second official language qualifications – A, B, or C
Specific language qualifications requiring Code P

Standard Description

Level A is the minimum level of second language ability in written comprehension for positions that require comprehension of texts on topics of limited scope.

A person reading at this level can:

fully understand very simple texts;
grasp the main idea of texts about familiar topics; and
read and understand elementary points of information such as dates, numbers, or names from relatively more complex texts to perform routine job-related tasks.

Hey as The SLE – Test of Reading Comprehension in the Second Official Language assesses the ability to understand texts written in your second official language.

Exam pattern

Fill in the blank; and

Answer the question.

Of the 60 questions, 50 will count towards your score.

Ten questions are pilot questions that will not count towards your score.

The questions comply with the test's specifications and have been approved for inclusion by a multidisciplinary team of subject-matter experts.

While these questions will not count towards your final score, they may be used in future versions of this test.

Time duration

You will have 90 minutes to complete all the questions on the test, in addition to 20 to 30 minutes for administration.

Your proficiency level is determined by your raw score on the test.

The raw score you receive on this test reflects the number of items you answered correctly, out of the 50 questions that count towards your final score. For example, if you answered 46 questions correctly, your raw score would be 46
