● read, listen, and then speak in response to a question

● listen and then speak in response to a question

 read, listen, and then write in response to a question

These new questions measure the student’s ability to use English to communicate effectively and determine if they have the language skills needed for academic success.

Four Sections of TOEFL IBT


1. TOEFL iBT Reading Section


The Reading section measures the student’s ability to understand university-level academic texts and passages.  The following are three purposes for academic reading:

 

1.1 Reading to find information

1.2 Basic comprehension

1.2 Reading to learn

 

The TOEFL iBT uses reading passages from university-level textbooks that introduce a discipline or topic.The passages cover a variety of different subjects. Students should not be concerned if theyare unfamiliar with a topic. The passage contains all the information needed to answer the questions. 

Common organization types that students should be able to recognize are:  classification, compare/contrast, cause/effect and problem/solution. Test takers must read through each passage before receiving questions on that passage.

 

TOEFL IBT Reading Question Formats


There are three question formats in the Reading section:

● questions with four choices and a single answer in traditional multiple-choice format

● questions with four choices and a single answer that ask students to “insert a sentence” where it fits best in a passage

new “reading to learn” questions with more than four choices and more than one possible correct answer.

2. TOEFL iBT Listening Section


The Listening section measures student’s ability to understand spoken English. In academic settings, students must be able to listen to lectures and conversations. Academic listening is typically done for one of the three following purposes:

 

2.1 Listening for basic comprehension

2.2 Listening for pragmatic understanding

2.3 Connecting and synthesizing information

 

Listening material in the TOEFL test includes academic lectures and long conversations in which the speech sounds very natural. Students can take notes on any listening material throughout the entire test.

 

TOEFL IBT Listening Question Formats


There are four question formats in the Listening section:

 

● traditional multiple-choice questions with four answer choices and a single correct answer

● multiple-choice questions with more than one answer 

● questions that require students to order events or steps in a process

● questions that require students to match objects or text to categories in a chart

3. TOEFL iBT Speaking Section


The Speaking section measures the student’s ability to speak effectively in academic settings.  The Speaking section is approximately 20 minutes long and includes six tasks;


● The first two tasks are independent speaking tasks  on topics familiar to students. They ask test takers to draw upon their own ideas, opinions, and experiences when responding. 

 

The remaining four tasks are integrated tasks where students must use more than one skill when responding. Students first read and listen, and then speak in response. They can take notes and use those notes when responding to the speaking tasks.

At least one requires students to relate the information from the reading and the listening material.

 

4. TOEFL iBT Writing Section


The Writing section measures a student’s ability to write in an academic environment.  The total time for the Writing section is 50 minutes. Students write their responses to two writing tasks . Responses are typed into the computer and sent to ETS for rating. 

 

Writing section icludes two tasks;

 

● Intergradted Writing Often students need to write a paper or an essay response on an exam about what they are learning in their classes. This requires combining information they have heard in class lectures with what they have read in textbooks or other materials. 


● Independent Writing Students must also write essays that express and support their opinions. In this type ofwriting, known as independent writing, students express an opinion and support it based on their own knowledge and experience.
