TOEFL iBT Paper Edition Added To ETS' Product Portfolio
To facilitate more options for study abroad aspirants, test provider ETS has announced a new format for TOEFL iBT. The new format, TOEFL iBT Paper Edition, includes two sessions for the test, where test-takers will be able to attempt the test in two different places, i.e. one session in a test centre and the other at their homes.
The executive director of the TOEFL Program, Mr Srikanth Gopal said, “We are excited to offer test takers yet another option for the TOEFL iBT test. It has been a busy few years for the TOEFL Program, but we set out with a customer-focused mindset and a goal to continue creating and enhancing high-quality testing options that serve the needs of students and institutions.”
He additionally added, “We’re eager to support students as they take advantage of the different options in the TOEFL portfolio of tests as part of their study-abroad journeys.”
The testing provider added its TOEFL Home Edition to its permanent product portfolio during the global health pandemic, while also introducing early performance indicators for its TOEFL iBT.
Additionally, ETS revealed an “accessible, affordable” Essentials test earlier in 2021.
The TOEFL iBT Paper Edition offering furthers the goal of serving the needs of students and institutions with new options.
As per the announcement, a new TOEFL iBT Paper Edition will be introduced, where four skills of the candidate will be evaluated over two sessions.
One session will be in the allocated centre and the other at the candidate’s home.
ETS further announced that the new offers will only be offered in India, Mexico, Colombia and US and will be offered at the same price point as the other formats in each location.
As per ETS, TOEFL iBT Paper Edition test-takers will first be asked to attempt the reading, listening and writing sections at the allocated test centres, subsequently attempting the speaking sections at their homes, within the next three days.
ETS further added that the new format of the TOEFL iBT Paper Edition test will be accepted in the same manner as the other tests, trusted by over 11,000 universities and institutions across 160 countries.
However, ETS has advised students to confirm the same with their prospective schools, colleges and universities.
The next step after giving your TOEFL iBT Paper Edition exam is to shortlist your university.
