Toefl score comparison unfair - August 16th, 2011

An analysis by the ETS which conducts Toefl (Test of English as a Foreign Language) showed that candidates whose mother tongue is an Indian language fared much better than those whose native language was English.

"Toefl provides accurate scores at the individual level; it is not appropriate for comparing countries," clarified Walt MacDonald, ETS executive vice-president and chief operating officer.

"The differences in the number of students taking the test in each country, how early English is introduced into the curriculum, how many hours per week are devoted to learning English, and the fact that those taking the test are not representative of all English speakers in each country or any defined population," Said MacDonald.
