We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

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)?
