Intended for students aged 11 and up, the TOEFL® Junior™ tests are an objective and reliable measure of your students’ English-language proficiency. Based on the rich heritage of the TOEFL® test and best practices in English-language testing, TOEFL® Junior™ tests can help you identify your students’ strengths and weaknesses.

English-teaching programmes around the world trust the TOEFL® Junior™ tests to help them make the best decisions about their students. The tests are suitable for use in, for example:

  • English language programmes – for placement and progress monitoring exchange programmes that bring international students to the US for one year
  • prep schools that recruit international students
  • international schools where the language of instruction is English
  • schools in non-English speaking countries, which teach mainly in English.

To meet the expectations of English-language programmes worldwide, the TOEFL® Junior™ tests feature two testing modes and measure a range of skil

  • The TOEFL® Junior™ Standard – a paper-and-pencil test that measures reading comprehension, listening comprehension, and language form and meaning
  • The TOEFL® Junior™ Comprehensive – a computer-based test, which measures reading comprehension, listening comprehension, speaking and writing.

TOEFL® Junior™ test format

Conveniently offered in paper-and-pencil format, the TOEFL® Junior™ Standard test is easy for any programme to administer. It measures three foundational skills for English fluency, which make it a good choice for institutions and programmes looking for flexibility and quick scoring.
