The Test Of English as a Foreign LanguageTOEFL®, sets global standards for English-language assessment in academic environments and is member of the TOEFL®-product line. The TOEFL® ITP test offers colleges, universities, English-language learning programs and other organizations the opportunity to administer a convenient, affordable and reliable assessment of English-language skills. The TOEFL® ITP test assesses students' proficiency levels in the skill areas of reading and listening comprehensions as well as structure and written expression.

Candidates with disabilities have to subscribe 5 (!) weeks in advance and need to indicate it.
