How to read your MELA report
The Michener English Language Assessment (MELA) evaluates your ability to communicate in English in the health care context; your performance is measured against requirements that are typical of communicative workplace tasks. The MELA is based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) so your scores are reported as benchmarks. MELA scores are accepted as proof of language proficiency for registration into academics and upgrading programs offered at the Michener Institute of Education at UHN and for professional registration with some health care regulators. There are no pass of fail scores on the MELA. Each program and regulatory body may have a different passing score.
