Today ETS and ApplyProof, the stand-alone trust solution powered by ApplyBoard, announced a new integration that will establish a seamless process for verifiers of TOEFL® and GRE® scores anywhere in the world. Applicants who take these tests, which are utilized as proof of English-language proficiency and to demonstrate graduate school readiness, respectively, will now have greater transparency and portability of their test results.
Moreover, through ApplyProof, TOEFL and GRE scores will be securely and efficiently verifiable. When students include their scores in an application, immigration officials, admissions officers and other stakeholders can seamlessly access these official scores through the ApplyProof Platform in a matter of seconds.
“The TOEFL test is the world’s premier English-language test for study, work and immigration, and in Canada, more universities receive TOEFL scores than any other English-language test,” says Srikant Gopal, Executive Director of the TOEFL program at ETS. “We are pleased to work with ApplyBoard and commend the solution it has created to facilitate a more seamless process in the verification of documents, like TOEFL scores, for both students and institutions who rely on them for high-stakes decisions.”
“It is always a welcomed change to find ways to streamline processes and make them more efficient, especially when we consider the unprecedented circumstances experienced by the higher education community over the past year,” says Alberto Acereda, Executive Director, Global Higher Education at ETS. “I’m confident that our relationship with ApplyBoard will lead to even greater efficiencies down the road and look forward to realizing the benefits that the ApplyProof technology provides to stakeholders across Canada and around the world.”
