Beginning February 15, students worldwide can view TOEFL iBT scores of the Reading and Listening sections on screen immediately upon conclusion of the test.
These unofficial scores can be used by students as an early performance indicator and can help them make well-informed decisions — such as reporting their scores at the end of the test — based on this performance. The Educational Testing Service (ETS) which administers the English exam announced this earlier in February.
These scores are viewable to students prior to leaving the test center, and can be viewed again via their full, official score reports approximately six days after the test date, via the TOEFL Official App or their online account.
Srikant Gopal, Executive Director of the TOEFL Program, said:
The TOEFL iBT test is the only English-language assessment that provides students the ability to view scores immediately following the test. Our commitment to students and institutions drives the changes and enhancements we’ve implemented over the last several months — they ensure the testing experience is as convenient and flexible as possible for students, while maintaining the rigorous standards of a fair and unbiased assessment that institutions rely on as a valid measure of academic English-language proficiency.
In addition, recent ETS policy updates have made online registration more convenient than ever. Students can now register online for an upcoming test administration just two days before a test (formerly four days).
“We understand that students worldwide will face deadlines and unexpected circumstances that may require them to make decisions later in the process,” said Gopal and added that ETS is confident this updated policy will provide ample opportunity for students to register at a time that is most conducive to their schedules.
