The TOEFL® Junior™ test is an assessment that measures the degree to which middle school students for whom English is a foreign language have attained proficiency in the academic and social English-language skills representative of English-medium instructional environments.

English-language proficiency is an increasingly important skill for students worldwide as it provides access to a wide range of educational, personal and professional opportunities. To that end, a reliable assessment of progress in English at a young age is crucial for student development.

The TOEFL Junior test can provide appropriate information for low- to medium-stakes decisions:

  • Provide parents and educators with objective information about student progress in developing English-language skills over time.

  • Serve as a comprehensive measurement that can be used to help support the placement of students into programs designed to increase English proficiency levels.

  • Measure developing English communication skills in preparation for future studies in English.
