It's called the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages . It's basically a certification test to get "certified" in that language. A1 is absolute beginner's, while C2 is complete mastery. Fluency is around B2.

They are beyond just being able to speak with fluency. That includes having the ability of producing a wide range of types of texts in a concise way, for example.

C1 is the ability of speaking as a native speaker without any pauses. C2 is like C1 but with a wider vocabulary and is the level expected for entry to a University.

C2 is like C1 but with a wider vocabulary and is the level expected for entry to a University.

I once did the German test to be able to study at a university in Germany. (The test is a common one, but each university of course decides its own criteria.)

The level of the test (what was needed for the maximum score) was around the higher end of C1; I think it may have been possible to pass it and be allowed to study in German even with a score amounting to B2.

There is a level test in all the languages to know what is your level in this language, there are A1,A2,B1,B2,C1,C2, A1 is a beginner level or basic level, A2 is a higher beginner level, B1 is to be something fluent/semi-fluent in this languages, B2 is a fluent level and it is used with teachers in schools as I think, C1 is a higher fluent level and it is used with trainers in this language as I think and C2 is completely fluent level :D And as Teenage_Polyglot said that it is called Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Hope this helps :)

There is not "a test" for these levels. It is the other way around, all existing tests have to group themselves into these levels or give at least equivalents. For English you can see the classification here: http://www.examenglish.com/examscomparison.php
