V-Check (Free)!

Test your vocabulary ability!

The patented V-Check test is the most meaningful test of English ability available today because it precisely diagnoses which specific English words you already know, and which specific words you do not already know.

Sample images from the V-Check test.

V-Check will precisely measure your vocabulary ability. V-Check is an IRT-based Computer Adaptive Test developed by lexical research scientists at major universities.

You reply Yes or No to the question: "Do you know the meaning of this word?"

The test includes many false words to control for guessing behavior. If you guess, you will need to restart the test.

Some questions ask you to select the best definition for the word.

How accurate is my V-Check score?

Based on the latest research, V-Check is the most accurate vocabulary test available. The patented V-Check is designed to test for knowledge of 99% of all words in use today. Other vocabulary tests are based on the Word Family concept which is capable of testing only 75% of all words in use. Furthermore, V-Check is designed to adjust for normal guessing behavior. Provided you answer the V-Check questions accurately, your score will reveal precisely how many of the 13,384 most frequently occurring English words you already know. V-Check will also determine which specific words you do not fully know, and that information will be used to create a personal vocabulary course just for you.
