How many hours of DynEd study does it take to improve one "level?"

You are here

Improvement in language proficiency is dependent on many factors, including whether or not the learner is located in a native English speaking environment, frequency of study, quality and intensity of study, quality of classroom follow-up and teacher support, and the language level and background of the student, himself or herself (age, first language, academic experience, and familiarity with computers).  For lower level students, a 1.0 improvement on DynEd’s Placement Test typically takes approximately 100 hours of DynEd study, 20% – 30% of which is with a teacher or coach.  For higher level students, above 2.0 on DynEd’s scale, a 1.0 proficiency gain will likely take double this amount of time.  Check DynEd’s “Academic Map” for more detail and a correlation to CEFR and other internationally recognized proficiency standards.
