Subject: Looking For a Test of English Proficiency

Dear linguists,

I am a PhD student planning a study on the use of prosody in non-native
English listening. I would like to find an appropriate test of English
proficiency to administer to the second language learners who will be
participating in my experiment. I am planning to test high-intermediate
and advanced-level learners of English. I was told that the MTELP (Michigan
Test) is not good for these levels of proficiency.

Could you please recommend an appropriate test of English proficiency for
language learners that would allow me to distinguish high-intermediate
from advanced learners of English, would test English grammar and would
be fairly short (no longer than 30 min)?

Best regards,
