TOEFL ITP® :

key information to remember

The TOEFL ITP test (Test Of English as Foreign Language - Institutional Testing Program) is the TOEFL version which is carried out on paper. Unlike the TOEFL IBT which takes place entirely online, this version is organized within secondary education establishments favoring paper supports. The TOEFL ITP is in some ways easier than its digital version. Not only is it shorter (2 hrs instead of 4 hrs) but also limited to three assessed skills (unlike 4 for the online TOEFL).

However, the TOEFL ITP remains, like the TOEFL IBT, for individuals whose mother tongue isn’t English and who wish to attest to their linguistic level. As it is well-known worldwide, this test is indeed a reliable proof of the candidate’s English level, for universities and companies.

TOEFL ITP has the specificity of offering great flexibility to those who supervise sessions. Most of the time, these are teachers who want to model the test, depending on their desires. The latter have the possibility of defining the date of the test, the size of the group of candidates, but also the objectives targeted by the test. The TOEFL ITP is carried out entirely on paper and uses only university content.

The TOEFL ITP covers three areas of skills and is therefore made up of the following three tests:

“Listening”

The first one concerns the oral comprehension section.This section of the exam lasts a total of 25 minutes and assesses the candidate’s ability to understand spoken English like it’s used in universities and higher education institutions. The section contains 50 questions on audio recordings. These recordings can be extracts from short conversations or long conversations, on topics related to student life. This test is divided into 3 exercises

  • Exercise 1: the candidate listens to 30 short conversations after which he must answer a question each time in the form of multiple choice questions. Each conversation can only be listened once.
  • Exercise 2: the candidate listens to 2 long conversations. After each of them, he must answer 4 questions in the form of multiple choice questions. Once again, conversations cannot be listened to more than once.
  • Exercise 3: the candidate listens to 3 extracts from academic courses (broadcast only once) at the end of which he must answer 4 multiple choice questions (for a total of 12 questions).

The questions asked in this oral comprehension section can relate to conversations, idioms, innuendo, rounded off, organization of conversations, etc..

“Structure and Written Expression”

This test assesses the structure of the language and written expression. Through several exercises, the candidate is tested on his knowledge of grammar and syntax and on his ability to spot errors in standard English texts. The topics covered mainly concern history, culture, literature and art, referring to Canada or the United States. This section lasts 25 minutes and is itself subdivided into 2 exercises.
The first is made up of 15 questions and you need to complete sentences by choosing from 4 possible answers. To give you a more clearer idea, here are some examples of questions you might find in this exercise:

  • Example 1:
    “Advocates __________ on aquarium hobbyists to buy only fish bred in captivity.”

    Propositions:
    • have called
    • are called
    • calls
    • is calling
    Right answer: A
  • Example 2:
    “Up to 90 percent of saltwater aquarium fish __________ to the U.S. are caught using cyanide.”

    Propositions:
    • import
    • importing
    • imports
    • imported
    Right answer: D
  • Exercise 3: the candidate listens to 3 extracts from academic courses (broadcast only once) at the end of which he must answer 4 multiple choice questions (for a total of 12 questions).

The second exercise in this section includes 25 questions in the form of sentences, in which one has to identify a grammatical or syntax-based error. The format of this exercise is very specific so here are some examples that will help you better understand:

  • Example 1:
    The (A) American Declaration of Independence (B) has been signed (C) on July 4, 1776 (D) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    The mistake is found:
    Right answer: B. The simple past needs to be used here: “was signed”.
  • Example 2:
    Some voters (A) are calling for the president (B) to be arrested on (C) charge of of (D) conspiracy.

    The mistake is found:
    Right answer: C.. The plural must be used: “charges”.

“Reading”

This is a written comprehension test. It is used to assess the candidate's ability to read and understand university texts written in English. The Reading lasts 55 minutes and includes 50 questions with short academic texts (about 10 questions per text).

Exemple:

The presented text is around 300 words and talks about a project which uses solar energy. Here is the type of questions that can be asked in this exercise:

  • Question 1:

    What is the main subject of the passage?

    • Bike paths
    • Solar panels
    • Solar roads
    • Chinese interstate systems
  • Question 2:

    The author uses the expression That's not all to indicate that:

    • the Netherlands was the only country involved
    • France and the Netherlands worked together
    • he has no further examples
    • France and the Netherlands aren't the only ones who have integrated solar roads
  • Question 3:

    Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word rounds?

    • ammunition
    • times
    • circles
    • praise

The TOEFL ITP score is calculated according to a precise algorithm specific to the test. It is therefore encouraged, not to neglect any question during this test because each of these represents a different number of points. To obtain a score, you must answer at least one question per section. The ITP TOEFL scoring system is specific: for each section of the test, the score is converted by a statistical average to a figure (between 31 and 68) on the TOEFL test scale, with an overall score between 310 and 677 which corresponds to the average of the scores per section, multiplied by 10 (except for level C1).

The TOEFL ITP is scored out of 677. The “Reading” section gives a score between 31 and 67. The “Writing” section is scored between 31 and 68 points. The “Listening” is also scored from 31 to 68.
The TOEFL test covers the language levels from A2 to C1 (according to the CEFR scale), which are the most common among English learners.

Here are the correspondence between TOEFL ITP score and official levels established by the CEFR:

TOEFL ITP Exam Score scale A2 (Elementary level) B1 (Intermediate level) B2 (Advanced intermediate level) C1 (Advanced level)
Listening/td> 31-68 38 47 54 64
Structure and written expression 31-68 32 43 53 64
Reading 31-67 31 48 56 63
Score total 310-677 337 460 543 627

The TOEFL ITP, like the TOEFL IBT has an academic context. This exam is mainly taken to help applications for Ivy league or English-speaking universities. The Test Of English as Foreign Language allows higher education establishments in France and abroad to know the level of English of their candidates. It is an important measurement tool, which is taken into account while selecting future students.

The score requested by universities varies, depending on their expectations and the reputation they have. Thus, you can expect that you’ll need to aim for very high scores if you apply for a spot in prestigious establishments. Generally speaking, universities require a B2 level to accept an application, corresponding to a total of at least 543 points out of 677. To get more information on the establishment to which you are applying, mainly concerning the minimum score which is required, you can inquire directly with your examination center.

You wish to register for the TOEFL ITP? To register for the test, you must first create an account on the ETS platform, as they administer the exam. The site provides access to the list of examination centers which are the closest but also the various session dates. The ITE TOEFL registration fee varies depending on the country. After the exam, you will have to wait ten days before you get your results. The diploma level is sent after approximately 13 days. You also have the possibility of choosing an option which allows the immediate unveiling of your results to the establishments of your choice (5 establishments maximum).

To optimize your score for TOEFL ITP, preparing in advance is the key to success. Even if you have a good level of English, it is possible to be caught off guard by the structure of the test and fail, due to lack of anticipation and preparation. Like with many language exams, the TOEFL ITP is a standardized test with very specific instructions and a way of working.
