L’Évaluation linguistique à l’oral évalue votre capacité à communiquer oralement dans votre seconde langue officielle (anglais ou français). Un évaluateur de langue certifié par la Commission de la fonction publique administre le test, qui comprend des questions liées à des situations de travail. Si vous ne travaillez pas en ce moment, les situations pourront porter sur les études ou des activités de bénévolat.


Description

The Oral Language Assessment evaluates your ability to communicate orally in your official second language (English or French). The test is administered by a certified language assessor from the Public Service Commission and includes questions related to work situations. If you are not currently working, the situations may relate to studies or volunteer activities.

  • Le test est administré à distance par Internet au moyen d’un outil de conférence Web (MS Teams) et dure de 20 à 40 minutes, incluant les instructions précédant le test. L’évaluateur commencera par confirmer votre identité en utilisant la fonction vidéo de MS Teams, puis enchaînera en se servant uniquement de la fonction audio jusqu’à la fin du test.
  • Vous n’avez pas besoin de vous trouver dans un bureau du gouvernement pour faire ce test. Toutefois, vous devriez prendre les dispositions nécessaires pour passer le test seul dans un environnement calme où vous ne serez pas dérangé pendant toute la durée du test.

  • FORMAT
  • The language test will be administered remotely via the internet using a web conferencing tool (MS Teams) and will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes, including the pre-test instructions.
  • Here are the details of the remote administration:
  • Platform: The test will be conducted using MS Teams.
  • Duration: The test will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes, including the pre-test instructions.
  • Identification: The assessor will begin by confirming your identity using the video function of MS Teams. The assessor will then use only the audio function for the remainder of the test.
  • Location: You do not need to be in a government office to take the test. However, you should make arrangements to take the test alone in a quiet environment where you will not be disturbed for the duration of the test.
  • Here are some additional tips for taking the test remotely:
  • Ensure you have a stable internet connection.
  • Use a headset with a microphone to ensure clear audio quality.
  • Choose a quiet location where you will not be interrupted.
  • Close any unnecessary programs or applications on your computer.
  • Familiarize yourself with the MS Teams interface beforehand.
  • Test your audio and video settings before the test begins.

Votre évaluateur vous guidera tout au long du test. Aucune préparation spéciale n’est requise. Répondez aux questions au meilleur de vos compétences.

Votre évaluateur vous incitera à démontrer que vous répondez aux exigences des différents niveaux de compétence en vous posant des questions élaborées à cette fin.

Le test devient progressivement plus difficile :

  • Le test débute avec des questions simples sur votre travail ou sur d’autres activités familières. Vos réponses à ces questions permettent à l’évaluateur de déterminer si vous pouvez démontrer des compétences de niveau A.
  • À partir de là, le test devient plus difficile alors qu’il évolue vers des questions conçues pour obtenir de votre part des réponses qui démontreront des compétences de niveau B, puis de niveau C, telles que définies par les Normes de qualification relatives aux langues officielles du Secrétariat du Conseil du Trésor du Canada.
  • L’évaluateur utilisera vos réponses pour évaluer votre capacité à communiquer clairement dans votre seconde langue officielle. L’évaluateur déterminera les questions à poser ainsi que le moment où il aura obtenu un échantillon linguistique suffisant pour évaluer votre performance. Par conséquent, l’évaluateur pourrait occasionnellement réorienter la conversation même si vous 

avez le sentiment de ne pas avoir tout dit ce que vous auriez pu dire sur un sujet donné.

Éléments qui n’affectent pas votre résultat :

  • Il n’est pas rare de perdre le fil de ses idées en parlant. Si cela vous arrive, dites-le à l’évaluateur. Il vous aidera à vous remettre sur la bonne voie.
  • Si vous ne connaissez pas la réponse à une question ou vous trouvez délicat de parler d’un sujet donné pour des raisons personnelles ou confidentielles, mentionnez-le à l’évaluateur, qui changera alors de sujet ou vous posera une autre question.
  • Vous pouvez aussi faire une brève pause pour penser à ce que vous aimeriez dire avant de répondre aux questions, mais cela ne devrait pas nuire à la fluidité de la communication.

Commettre des erreurs

  • Ne vous inquiétez pas outre mesure de vos erreurs.
  • Si vous ne trouvez pas un mot en particulier, utilisez-en un autre pour expliquer ce que vous voulez dire.
  • Si vous prenez conscience de vos erreurs et pensez être plus à l’aise en les corrigeant, faites-le. Cependant, rappelez-vous que le fait de se corriger trop souvent peut entraver la fluidité de la communication.

Ce test évalue votre capacité à servir la population canadienne dans votre seconde langue officielle (français ou anglais) au travail; par conséquent :

  • vous devez faire ce test honnêtement, par vous-même, sans l’aide d’autres personnes ni d’aucune ressource;
  • il pourrait y avoir des conséquences graves si toute forme de tricherie ou de fraude était soupçonnée;
  •  Le gestionnaire qui a fait la demande de test pourrait choisir de vous réévaluer à tout moment avant ou après votre nomination à un poste.

STRUCTURE

Your assessor will guide you through the test. No special preparation is required. Answer the questions to the best of your ability.

Your assessor will encourage you to demonstrate that you meet the requirements of the different proficiency levels by asking you carefully crafted questions.

The test gradually becomes more difficult:

  • The test begins with simple questions about your work or other familiar activities. Your answers to these questions allow the assessor to determine if you can demonstrate Level A skills.
  • From there, the test becomes more difficult as it progresses to questions designed to elicit responses from you that will demonstrate Level B and then Level C skills, as defined by the Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada’s Official Languages Qualification Standards.
  • The assessor will use your answers to assess your ability to communicate clearly in your official second language. The assessor will determine the questions to be asked and when they have obtained a sufficient language sample to assess your performance. Therefore, the assessor may occasionally redirect the conversation even if you feel that you have not said everything you could have said on a given topic.

Factors that do not affect your score:

  • It is not uncommon to lose track of one’s thoughts when speaking. If this happens to you, tell the assessor. They will help you get back on track.
  • If you do not know the answer to a question or find it difficult to talk about a particular topic for personal or confidential reasons, let the assessor know. They will then change the subject or ask you another question.
  • You can also take a short break to think about what you would like to say before answering the questions, but this should not impair the fluency of the communication.

Making mistakes:

  • Don’t worry too much about your mistakes.
  • If you can’t find a particular word, use another word to explain what you mean.
  • If you are aware of your mistakes and think you would be more comfortable correcting them, do so. However, remember that overcorrecting can hinder the fluency of communication.

This test assesses your ability to serve the Canadian public in your official second language (French or English) at work; therefore:

  • You must take this test honestly, on your own, without the help of others or any resources;
  • There could be serious consequences if any form of cheating or fraud is suspected;
  • The manager who requested the test may choose to reassess you at any time before or after your appointment to a position.
Additional Notes:
  • The test will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes.
  • The test will be conducted using MS Teams.
  • You will need a stable internet connection and a headset with a microphone.
  • Choose a quiet location where you will not be interrupted.
  • Familiarize yourself with the MS Teams interface beforehand.
  • Test your audio and video settings before the test begins.

If you have any questions about the language test, please contact your language assessor or the Public Service Commission.
