The Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (or MELAB) is a standardized test, created by CaMLA, which evaluates proficiency in understanding, writing and speaking the English language. It is designed for adults whose first language is not English, and is often used as a university admission criterion to judge whether applicants are sufficiently fluent to follow an English-language study program at a university level.

The test includes three mandatory parts and one optional:

  • Written composition
  • Listening comprehension
  • Grammar, cloze, vocabulary and reading comprehension multiple-choice questions
  • An optional speaking test in the form of a one-on-one interview with an examiner
