Info about TOEFL Scores

Here are some (interesting?) statistics about TOEFL results: average scores, scores among different native-language groups, etc.

And here's some information about how the test is scored.

And this is what an "actual" Score Report looks like.

By the way, you don't "pass" or "fail" the TOEFL. You need to check the websites of the schools you're going to apply to and see what they require; this can vary from department to department within the same university!!!

Here's the page from the ETS website that lists the scores for numerous universities:
TOEFL iBT Scores Set by Universities and Other Score Users

By the way, you don't send your TOEFL score to the universities you're applying to; this is done automatically by ETS.

Since the TOEFL iBT came out in Oct 2005, LOTS of "off-the-shelf" materials that students - or teachers - can buy are available, but it's really hard to say which ones are really good. Several companies offer products, including commercial TOEFL prep courses on the Internet, but their quality has yet to stand the test of time. Here's what is offering, just so you can get an idea.

ETS provides quite a bit of material to help you become acquainted with and prepare for the exam. The "Information and Registration Bulletin for Internet-based Testing (iBT)" (.pdf file) gives the general administrative information, and TOEFL iBT Tips gives lots of information about the details of the test itself.

After you've registered for the test, you get an email that gives you info you'll need on test day.

Today we'll look at some of the administrative aspects of the TOEFL. When we've finished, please go on to do the vocabulary work and the exercises.

We'll look at the relevant parts of the "Tips" when we start working on the individual parts of the test Writing, Listening, etc.
