“Education is not the answer to the question. Education is the means to the answer to all questions.” 

— William Allin

EIKEN (英検 Eiken) stands for the EIKEN Test in Practical English Proficiency (実用英語技能検定 Jitsuyō Eigo Ginō Kentei), which is Japan’s leading language assessment, and is backed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT). EIKEN is informally also called STEP EIKEN or the STEP Test.


The EIKEN test is the main product of STEP (The Society for Testing English Proficiency) and is one of the world’s most widely administered language tests. The Society for Testing English Proficiency is Japan’s largest testing body and a leader in international education. Established in 1963 in cooperation with the Japanese education ministry, STEP is a nonprofit foundation with a clear purpose: to advance English learning in Japan by providing accessible, affordable assessment tools for learners at all proficiency levels.
