TOEFL

Test of English as a Foreign Language (iBT = Internet Based Test)

Overview
The new TOEFL iBT test consists of four sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. All sectionsare taken on the same day, and the test is approximately four hours long. 

Format

  • Instructions for answering questions are given within each section; there is no computer tutorial.
  • TOEFL iBT is not computer adaptive. Each test taker receives the same range of questions.Test takers can take notes throughout the entire test. At the end of testing, all notes are collected anddestroyed at the test center.
  • For the Speaking section, test takers speak into a microphone, and their responses are digitallyrecorded and sent to the ETS Online Scoring Network.
  • For the Writing section, test takers must type their responses, and their responses are sent to the ETSOnline Scoring Network.
  • Human raters, trained and certified by ETS, rate the Speaking and Writing responses.

• Listen, then Speak in response to a question.
