About the TOEFL iBT® Test

The TOEFL iBT® test measures a test taker's ability to combine listening, reading, speaking and writing skills where it matters most — in the classroom. It gives your institution access to millions of students who have proven they have what it takes to succeed in an English-speaking academic environment.

The TOEFL iBT test is administered worldwide via three testing options.

  • TOEFL iBT® test: Test on a computer at an authorized test center.
  • TOEFL iBT® Home Edition: Test on a computer at home, monitored by a human proctor.
  • TOEFL iBT® Paper Edition: Test in 2 sessions — Reading, Listening, and Writing on paper at a test center, and Speaking on a computer at home.

Each option provides the same valid and reliable TOEFL iBT test, identical in content and scoring.
