TOEFL preparation to become easier with the launch of app; Score reporting now in six days
New Delhi, October 23, 2019: Educational Testing Service (ETS) has launched a new app for TOEFL aspirants today to aid with registration, preparation, scores and disability accommodation to name a few. Coinciding with the release of the app, ETS also announced the delivery of TOEFL scores in six days compared to the earlier 10 day period from the date of the exam. Scores will now be sent in nine days to the institutions bringing the time down here too.
Talking about the app, Srikant Gopal, Executive Director of the TOEFL Program, ETS said after the launch, “We are continuing to identify meaningful ways to transform the TOEFL test experience for students and institutions. The TOEFL app meets students where they are by providing them with a convenient and streamlined way to access many components of the test experience on their mobile devices, from registration and test prep through score delivery”.
Speaking on the time reduction in delivery of the TOEFL scores, Gopal elaborated, “Executing a faster score turnaround was a major priority for us based on the feedback we’ve heard from students and institutions. Shortening the waiting period for retesting and adding afternoon test sessions provided students with additional opportunities to test sooner and more frequently if they need to. Therefore, creating a faster score reporting process to accompany those just made sense - something that is beneficial for both students and institutions.”
