TOEFL test taker scores and photos are available through a secure online portal. Score recipients can use the ETS® Data Manager for easy, on-demand, secure access to score information and test taker data free of charge. TOEFL scores and photos are made available through the ETS Data Manager approximately twice a week via the Internet. Note: Photos are not available for test takers who took the TOEFL paper-based test.
This service provides users with the ability to automatically download test taker scores from the ETS server to a client server. It requires a one-time setup by the institution's IT or technology staff. Data files containing TOEFL scores are made available approximately twice a week via the Internet.
NOTE: The ETS Data Manager also includes a reporting format called Scorelink®. See the current dataset layout for that format.
Paper Score Reports
Featuring the ETS Security Guard, a special heat-sensitive ink that, when activated, verifies the report's authenticity, paper score reports are mailed to TOEFL Designated Institutions (DIs) twice a week. Scores for the TOEFL paper-based test are mailed approximately five weeks after the test date. Allow 7–10 days for mail delivery within the United States, and 4–6 weeks for other locations.
TOEFL® Online Speech Sample Service
The free TOEFL Online Speech Sample Service enables you to listen to a clip of a test taker's spoken response to an integrated speaking task. Score users who want to request this service should email TOEFLNews@ets.org.

Institutions are required to maintain the confidentiality of TOEFL scores.
