ETS Announces Changes in TOEFL

May 23, 2019
 
 

The Educational Testing Service has announced changes in the Test of English as a Foreign Language, known as TOEFL and a key test for many international students seeking to study in the United States. ETS said that the test will now be just three hours long, 30 minutes shorter than the current test. All four sections -- reading, listening, speaking and writing -- will be retained. But another change is that ETS will introduce a form of "super scoring," in which a student may submit scores from the different sections taken at different times, as long as all the tests were taken over a two-year period. So the best scores on each section will be grouped together for one score, along with other scores based on the date the test was taken.
