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 ?
Okay, I spotted this on the net:
Also, you might want to look here: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).
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:
213 comes to an equivalent of 550 in PBT
250 comes to an equivalent of 600 in PBT
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.

Also, don't forget to have a look at the directory itself:
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:
You can see that 557 PBT (or IBT, same thing basically) is 220 CBT.
