Kaplan: The TOEFL iBT Experts

The TOEFL iBT at a Glance The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures a non-native English speaker’s communication ability and is most commonly used by high school, undergraduate, and graduate admissions offices in the United States. Students who have received their education in non-English speaking countries are often required to demonstrate an acceptable level of English proficiency on the TOEFL in order to be considered for admission to American colleges and universities. The new TOEFL iBT tests integrated skills, and provides more accurate information than ever before regarding a test taker’s ability to communicate in an academic setting. Internet-based testing captures speaking and writing responses, and transmits them to human raters for evaluation and scoring. Score reports include each skill section’s score and a total score that is the sum of the scores of all 4 sections of the exam (0–120).
