Since 1979, organizations around the world have used the TOEIC® test to assess English-language skills used in the workplace.  They use the TOEIC® test to hire, place and promote employees. Today TOEIC® test scores are used by nearly 14,000 companies, government agencies, and English language learning programs in 150 countries.

Workplace Assessments that Meet Business Needs

TOEIC test questions simulate real-life situations that are relevant to the global workplace. Score reports provide accurate, meaningful feedback about a test-taker’s strengths and weaknesses, along with a description of the English-language strengths typical of test-takers performing at various score levels. This allows employers to:

  • Relate test scores to the tasks employees may perform on the job
  • Use the descriptions to inform critical hiring and placement decisions
  • Select the employee with the English-language abilities the job requires

Additionally, ETS’s ongoing research helps ensure that the TOEIC tests are accurate and relevant to today’s changing global workplace, which helps internationally competitive companies hire, place and promote the right candidates year after year.

Standardized Testing Means Reliable Results

TOEIC test scores provide accurate, reliable measurement of English proficiency — they can be compared regardless of where or when the test is administered. For example, last year’s scores of a test taker in Japan can be compared with this year’s scores of a test taker in Korea. Because test takers of any background can be compared fairly, companies can use the TOEIC tests to make the most informed decisions and build a more diverse workforce.

Equal Opportunity for all Test Takers

ETS ensures standardized test conditions give test takers equal opportunity to demonstrate proficiency.

  • Test administrations adhere to strict guidelines to ensure a consistent and fair test-taking experience.
  • A scoring process held to the highest quality-control standards results in the most reliable and valid scores available.
