TOEFL Junior Scores

TOEFL Junior score reports are a valuable tool that can help you guide your students. They include section and total scores as well as "can-do" statements that you can use to help students, parents and instructors understand students' proficiency levels and progress.

Scores can be useful for international benchmarking because they are mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) levels, and they are matched with Lexile® 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 student's current level of English-language proficiency and are not designed to be a predictor of future TOEFL iBT® scores. Because language proficiency is likely to change over time, institutions are advised not to use test scores that are older than two years.
