Purpose of the TOEFL Test

The purpose of the TOEFL test is to evaluate the English proficiency of people who are non-native English speakers. In addition, international companies, government agencies, scholarship programs, and recruitment agencies use TOEFL scores to evaluate English proficiency.

IBT: The TOEFL test on computer combines many of the same question types as the traditional paper-based test with new question types that can be offered only in the computer format. This is an easy-to-use testing system for even the most basic computer users.

The TOEFL iBT test has 4 sections

Section 1: Listening
Section 2: Structure (Grammar)
Section 3: Reading
Section 4: Writing

1. Listening Comprehension:
Measures the ESL student's ability to understand North American English.

2. Structure & Written Expression
Measures the ESL student's ability to recognize language appropriate for standard written English.

3. Vocabulary & Reading Comprehension
Measures the ESL student's ability to understand non-technical reading material.

4. Essay Writing
Measures the ESL student's ability to express ideas in standard written English.


The score range on the TOEFL iBT Test is: 0-120. In other words, the highest possible total score is 120 points.

This breaks down in each section as a scaled score:

Listening: 0-30, Time: 60-90 minutes
Speaking: 0-30, Time: 20 minutes
Reading: 0-30, Time: 60-100 minutes
Writing: 0-30, Time: 50 minutes

There is no individual section that tests your grammar / sentence structure on the TOEFL iBT test, although grammar / structure is evaluated in your speaking and writing responses. Feedback on your performance for each language skill is provided on the test report.

How often can I take the TOEFL iBT test? If I cancel my scores, can I take the test again?

You can retake the test as many times as you wish, even if you took the test and cancelled your scores. However, you cannot do the test more than once in a 12 day period (If you already have a test date appointment, you cannot register for another test date within 12 days of that existing appointment). Your TOEFL score is available online approximately 10 days after your last test date.
