- The TOEFL ibt test is an internet based test. The actual test is delivered via the internet at secure, official test centers. You will have your own workstation and headset and you will be able to control the volume of your headset. Test-takers cannot take the official test at home.
- Listen and read the instructions carefully. If you do not follow the instructions correctly, you will get a computer message instructing you to go back and follow the instructions, causing you to lose valuable time.
- Some passages in the Reading section include a word or phrase that is underlined in blue. Click on the word or phrase to see a definition or an explanation.
- When you want to move on to the question in the Reading section, click on Next. You can skip questions and go back to them later in the part you are working on as long as there is time remaining. A clock at the top of the screen will show you how much time is remaining. If you want to return to previous questions, click on Back. You can click on Review at any time, and the review screen will show you which questions you have answered and which you have not. From this review screen, you may go directly to any question you have already seen in the part of the Reading section you are working on.
- In the Listening section, you must answer every question. After you answer, click on Next. Then click on OK to confirm your answer and go to the next question. After you click on OK, you cannot return to previous questions. A clock at the top of the screen will show you how much time is remaining. The clock will not count down while you are listening to test material.
- In the Speaking section of the test, you will answer six questions by speaking into the microphone of your headset. For each question you will be given a short time to prepare your response. A clock on the screen will show how much preparation time is remaining. When the preparation time is up, you will be told to begin your response. A clock will show how much response time is remaining. A message will appear on the screen when the response time has ended.
- For the first writing task, you will read a passage and listen to a lecture and then type your answers to a question based on what you have read and heard. For the second writing task, you will have to type an answer to a question based on your own knowledge and experience. A clock on the screen will show how much response time is remaining for each task.
