Measure your te reo proficiency

The Level Finder Examination (LFE) provides a general indicator of a candidate’s ability to aurally recognise words and their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. The examinations are open to individuals and organisations who wish to test their Māori language proficiency against the Whakamātauria Tō Reo Māori framework.

The examination is a one hour written test with an additional ten minutes reading time.

The examination has three parts:

  • Aural recognition (dictation)
  • Vocabulary (close reading and multi-choice answer options)
  • Grammar (close reading and multi-choice answer options)
