The at-home editions of the GRE and TOEFL exams are now available worldwide for test takers who have been affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The solutions were initially announced on 23 March and were available in nine countries and administrative regions.
At-home testing in Iran soon
The at-home versions of the exams are now available everywhere the computer-delivered TOEFL iBT test and GRE General Test are normally available, with the exception of Mainland China and Iran. In Mainland China, ETS is working closely with NEEA to accommodate test takers impacted by test cancellations, including adding test dates once regular testing resumes. ETS is working to offer at-home testing in Iran as soon as as possible.
Testing is conducted through artificial intelligence technology and the use of live human remote proctoring. These at-home testing solutions are identical in content, format, on-screen experience, scoring and pricing as the TOEFL iBT test and GRE General Test taken at a test center. Every test feature that students would expect in the test center — such as the ability to preview, skip questions, review and change answers on the GRE General Test, and the ability to view Reading and Listening scores at the end of the TOEFL iBT test — is available to test takers via these solutions.
Numerous test times each week
Students have an opportunity to select from numerous test times each week to find a time that is most conducive to their schedules. Registration is currently open for test dates through June 2020. ETS will continue to assess the situation to determine whether additional test dates will be added.
Srikant Gopal, Executive Director of TOEFL, said:
We understand the challenges that our test takers are facing worldwide and are pleased to now offer an option to safely test at home without compromising the integrity of our tests.
