The main reason behind TOEFL is that you can complete your Education in English successfully.The TOEFL is now only available as a computer-adaptive test.
Universities in America, Eruope and Australia require international students whose mother tongue is not English to complete an English proficiency test called the TOEFL (Test Of English as a Foreign Language) to determine if they can function in an English teaching environment.
Taking the TOEFL is a necessary step for any non US or Canadian educated student who wants to study at a American or Eruopean university. It is also increasingly required from other educational institutions throughout the world, as well as a desired or mandatory job qualification.
This is how TOEFL works:
Instead of having a pre-determined mixture of easy, medium, and hard questions, the computer will select questions for you based on how well you are doing.
The first question will be of medium difficulty; if you get it right, the second question will be selected from a large group of questions that are a little harder; if you get the first question wrong, the second will be a little easier. The result is that the test automatically adjusts to your skill level. But the Reading Comprehension is not computer adaptive. The Tough questions have more credit than easier ones.
