IAU is an approved TOEFL ITP test administrator. TOEFL ITP tests provides IAU a convenient, affordable English proficiency test that can be used for ESL placement, progress evaluation, exit testing and other situations. Designed by the creators of the TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) the TOEFL ITP, Institutional Testing Program for English Proficiency, consists of paper-and-pencil tests and requires about two and a half hours. TOEFL ITP is not used for the same purposes as the TOEFL iBT test. The TOEFL iBT test is an official test administered by ETS under secure conditions. Its scores can be used by institutions to make important decisions, such as whether or not to admit a student.
