Learn about the TOEFL® Committee of Examiners (COE)
The TOEFL® Committee of Examiners (COE) consists of 12 committee members from around the world, each of whom has achieved professional recognition in an academic field related to research, testing or teaching of English as a foreign or second language. Members rotate on a regular basis to ensure the continued introduction of new ideas and philosophies related to second-language teaching and testing. Members provide guidance and oversight for research and development related to the TOEFL test. This role includes identifying and evaluating research and development work needed to support existing assessment products and services. On other matters, such as major test redesign, policy changes and the introduction of new products and services, the COE has the power of recommendation to the TOEFL Board.
Members of the TOEFL COE come from a range of countries including Australia, Canada, Finland, The Netherlands, New Zealand, the UK, and the US. Most members are part of the linguistics department. Interested in reading more about TOEFL research? Visit our website http://www.ets.org/toefl/research/.
