Gaba Introduces CASEC

"man-to-man" English teaching specialist Gaba is to introduce a new online testing system. They will begin offering the Computerized Assessment System for English Communication (CASEC) on January 4, 2005. The online test was originally created by The Society for Testing English Proficiency (STEP) and is now developed and administered by The Japan Institute for Educational Measurement (JIEM, part of the Obunsha group). The test is shorter than its written equivalent, taking about 30-40 minutes, scores are given immediately, and the test is available online 24 hours a day. Since its introduction three years ago, over 170,000 people have taken the test. Gaba president Chutatsu Aono said, "The CASEC offers not only the ease and convenience of an online test, but also a high level of accuracy and is an ideal partner for Gaba's client service. Our aim is to be a Total English Solution Provider."
