Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (‘Te Taura Whiri’) administers the Level Finder Examination (‘LFE’) to provide a general indicator of a candidate's proficiency in te reo Māori, including their ability to recognise words and knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. The examinations are open to individuals and organisations who wish to test their te reo Māori proficiency against the Whakamātauria Tō Reo Māori framework. The target audience for people who sit the LFE are public servants, many of whose organisations now have or are developing incentives for individuals who develop their te reo Māori proficiency.

The examination is currently an hour written test with an additional ten minutes of 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).

Developing the new exam suite is the first phase of transformation for the LFE.
