    Sponsored Ad: (Join for no ads)
    Hi there... I took the ITP - TOEFL (PBT) as a prepartion for the toefl exam so I got a score of 557. I don't know about this score, is it a good score and how can we compare it with the original TOEFL scores ?

    Would you be taking the CBT or the PBT? If you would be taking the CBT, then the powerprep scores are the ones which come closest to your test-day scores.

    Re: ITP - TOEFL exam score

    Okay, I spotted this on the net:

    The purpose of the Institutional Testing Program from Test of English as a Foreign Language (ITP-TOEFL) is to evaluate the English proficiency of non-native speakers. . The ITP-TOEFL score is not internationally recognized. Most overseas universities require submission of the TOEFL score, but the ITP-TOEFL is valid for students wishing to apply to local universities. The test consists of listening comprehension, structure and written expression and reading comprehension, conducted on a Paper Based Test (PBT) only. The scoring system for the ITP-TOEFL is similar to the TOEFLís Paper Based Test (PBT).
    Also, you might want to look here:
    http://www.ets.org/toefl/government/toefltables.html

    I am not aware of what PBT scores are acceptable for US schools. But I know that, in general, US schools have two cut off levels for the CBT scores:

    213 --> For low ranked programs or programs which require just a qualifying score in TOEFL.

    250 --> For high-ranked programs or for those programs which think their prospective students require a higher proficiency in English for grasping the course content.

    So according to this table:
    http://www.ets.org/toefl/government/table4.html

    213 comes to an equivalent of 550 in PBT
    250 comes to an equivalent of 600 in PBT
    Your score:
    557 comes to an equivalent of 220 in CBT

    So it may be fine for a program with 213 as a cut-off.

    Hope that helps.

    Dingus

    You may also want to check out this very useful guide to interpretation of scores:
    http://ftp.ets.org/pub/toefl/989551.pdf

    Also, don't forget to have a look at the directory itself:
    http://ftp.ets.org/pub/toefl/

    Many files there are pretty useful for preparation as well as for other aspects of TOEFL.

    They were working yesterday. I am puzzled. I am getting a message "Server Error". The best bet is to keep trying. Maybe ETS has that server down today.

    Another option would be download the documents available here:

    Here is a working chart:

    http://www.languagesystems.com/toefl_chart.htm

    You can see that 557 PBT (or IBT, same thing basically) is 220 CBT.

    TINO!
