Toefl Test
TOEFL iBT FORMAT
TOEFL iBT is being gradually introduced throughout the world. With the advent of the new ibTOEFL (Internet-based TOEFL) and its online delivery, a new and better era of language skill assessment has been introduced. The new test includes voice-recording technology, so it will not only more effectively measure your ability to understand English; it will also assess your speaking ability. The new test will be a better evaluation tool for assessing your overall communication skills in the English language.

So, whatís new? Well, almost everything!

It tests all four language skills that effective communication requires: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. It emphasizes and measures English usage and communication ability in academic settings.

It has a Speaking section
This section includes six tasks that require test takers to wear headphones and speak into a microphone when they respond. Your responses will be digitally recorded and transmitted to the ETS Online Scoring Network where human scorers rate them. The scorers are carefully monitored for accuracy, so you can be assured of the reliability of your Speaking scores.

It takes longer to complete (about four hours)
The computer and paper-based versions took about 3.5 hours. The ibTOEFL is about 4 hours long. You will be required to complete all of the sections in one day, so you will not have to travel to the test center twice.

Note taking is allowed
You can do this throughout the test and it will come in handy with the new format. Test takers can use the notes when answering test questions. The notes are collected and destroyed before the test takers leave the test center.

Some questions require the test taker to use more than one English-language skill and combine or integrate information from more than one source, the same way students use English language every day in the classroom. For example, sometimes test takers read a passage, listen to a short lecture about a topic, and then provide a written or spoken response. TOEFL iBT helps test takers prove they can combine their Englishlanguage skills to communicate ideas effectively. This ability is the key to academic success.

The questions are different, you will be asked to:
  • Read, listen, and then speak in response to a question
  • Listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Read, listen, and then write in response to a question
Itís more like the real thing
The listening sections include longer, more authentic conversations and lectures instead of shorter dialogues. You can take notes while listening. Test questions will ask you to determine things like the attitude of the speaker, the point of the lecture, or the speakerís motivation.

The Writing section is longer
Youíll be required to write a response to material that you hear and read, and to then compose an essay in support of an opinion. Your responses are scored by human graders, as well as by the ETS Online Scoring Network. The average rating is converted to a scaled score of 0 to 30.

There's no Grammar section
This section is gone, but your grammar will be evaluated in your speaking and writing responses.

They explain your scores
Youíll get a description of your performance on key points of the test. This will help you to study for future tests and to increase your English-language ability.
