Education Testing Services introduces TOEFL Essentials test for students aspiring to study abroad. ETS announced today the introduction of a brand-new English-language proficiency assessment, the TOEFL Essentials test. The TOEFL Essentials test becomes the second high-stakes English-language proficiency test within the TOEFL Family of Assessments – joining alongside the TOEFL iBT test launched more than 15 years ago. In addition, TOEFL Essentials is the first English-language test that offers the ideal combination of the convenient, affordable access students want and the quality institutions trust. Registration will open to test takers on Thursday, June 17 for administrations beginning on Saturday, Aug. 21.
The TOEFL Essentials test is a versatile four-skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) English-language test designed for university admissions and other high-stakes decisions. It measures a combination of academic and general English skills – those that are needed for the classroom setting and beyond (e.g., internships and interviews). In addition, the test provides institutions with expanded insights through writing and speaking samples from the test, additional measures of foundational skills and a unique Personal Video Statement – a short, unscored, video recording which provides an opportunity for applicants to showcase their unique personalities.
TOEFL Essentials will test the students in Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing. The test will also offer the combination of convenience and affordable access and the quality that institutions trust. Fifty per cent of the content of the test will be from Academic English and the remaining 50 per cent will be from General English. The TOEFL Essentials will be a home-based, online, remote-proctored test. Students applying are required to submit an application fee of Rs. 7300. The registrations for the TOEFL examinations will commence on June 17, 2021, while the exams will be conducted on August 21, 2021.
