An ELT Glossary : Test Battery

A test battery is a test which involves more than one activity type - in other words, the test is composed of a group of activities which may be scored individually or whose scores may be combined into one overall score. For example, the Cambridge English PET has three components :

- A Reading and Writing test
- A Listening test
- A Speaking test

The results are combined into a single score, which is then graded as Fail, Pass, Pass with Merit, or Pass with Distinction
