The TOEFL Primary® tests are designed to assess the English-language proficiency of young students in reading, listening and speaking. The tests provide support for teaching and learning with information about your students’ abilities; engaging, age-appropriate content; and feedback that helps keep young learners motivated.
The TOEFL Primary tests can be used to measure language proficiency and developing skills of students as young as 8 years old who have been learning English for about a year or more, though the tests may be appropriate for other students as well. Decisions about the appropriateness of the tests should be based on the English-language proficiency of the students.
The TOEFL Primary tests are not based on or limited to any specific curriculum. All TOEFL Primary tests assess students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities for fulfilling core communication goals in English. These communication goals are shared across curricula worldwide.
