TOEFL Junior score reports are a valuable tool that can help you guide your students. They include scores, Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) levels, as well as descriptors of student's ability that you can use to help students, parents and teachers understand students' proficiency levels and progress.

Scores are useful for international benchmarking because they are mapped to CEFR levels. And TOEFL Junior Standard reading scores are matched with Lexile® reading measures from MetaMetrics®, which makes it easier for instructors to help students choose books at the right reading level to improve their English reading proficiency.

The TOEFL Junior tests measure a test taker's current level of English-language proficiency and are not designed to be a predictor of future TOEFL iBT® scores.

TOEFL Junior® Score Availability

TOEFL Junior test scores are available for reporting for 2 years after the test date. Because English-language proficiency can change rapidly depending on additional learning or development since the time of testing, decisions involving scores will be most valid when scores are obtained close to the point at which the decisions are made. Institutions can choose to use scores that are more than 2 years old as a record of an individual's English-language proficiency at the time the test was taken.
