ITP TOEFL (Institutional Testing Program)

The TOEFL ITP® Assessment Series offers colleges and universities, English-language programs and other organizations the opportunity to administer a convenient, affordable and reliable assessment of English-language skills. The TOEFL ITP Level 1 and Level 2 tests can be used for placement, monitoring progress, evaluation, exit testing and other situations. By using the TOEFL ITP tests, you can keep your students on track and have confidence in their real-world abilities.

When you use the TOEFL ITP tests, you’ll assess your students’ proficiency level in three different skills – reading comprehension, listening comprehension, and structure and written expression. You’ll be able to pinpoint the areas in which they need help so you can tailor your teaching to meet those needs. Knowing your students’ English-skill levels better today gives them the best chance for success tomorrow. When you use the TOEFL ITP assessments, you put the power of the TOEFL® test to work in your program. The TOEFL ITP assessments share the same rich heritage as the TOEFL test – the world’s most widely accepted and respected English ­language assessment.

The TOEFL ITP and TOEFL iBT® tests are used for separate purposes and administered differently. The TOEFL iBT test is a high-stakes assessment administered by ETS. Institutions use TOEFL iBT test scores to make high-stakes decisions, such as university-level student admissions. TOEFL ITP tests are administered by institutions or our ETS preferred network and used for specific purposes including placement, monitoring progress and more.
