Aug 28 13
Educational Testing Service is releasing publicly the expanded results of its report on TOEIC(R) test takers worldwide for the TOEIC (R) Listening and Reading (L&R) assessment. The TOEIC(R) Listening and Reading Report on Test Takers Worldwide presents information about TOEIC test-takers' average Listening and Reading scores, educational background, work experience, English language study and use, and the TOEIC test-taking experience. Responses to the questionnaire, on which the report is based, enable users to learn more about the backgrounds of people who took the test and some of the factors that affected their TOEIC scores and related improvement in English proficiency. ETS is making this data available for reference as organizations look to set score benchmarks and goals, however, the response rates varied across different background questions and care should be taken in making inferences based on this data.TOEIC assessments are fair, reliable, and valid measures of a test taker's ability to use English common in the workplace. Used by nearly 14,000 organizations in 150 countries, the TOEIC tests are the international standard for assessing an individual's English-language proficiency level for the workforce, measuring how well a potential employee can apply their English-language skills in a practical working environment. While organizations use TOEIC scores and surveys to build a stronger workforce, job seekers trust the TOEIC Program to differentiate themselves in a competitive job market. TOEIC assessments measure all four language skills and provide descriptions of test takers' strengths and weaknesses that can be used to inform critical hiring, placement, and training decisions.
