Organise your TOEIC® test sessions remotely

Remote proctoring is now available for academic institutions

Following the repercussions of the Covid-19 epidemic on the opening of institutions and the unavailability of test sessions on your premises, our teams worked on providing a secure solution that allows you to take the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test online and remotely.

And until end of September 2020, no additional fees will be charges for this service. Only the price of the test will be charged per student.

The remote proctoring solution: flexibility and security

For institutions:

  • No packages to receive or to ship.
  • No room or proctor to be mobilised for the organisation of the session.
  • Great flexibility in scheduling sessions (from Monday to Saturday, 24 hours a day depending on available timeslots).
  • Scores received by the institution referent at least 4 days after the session.
  • Sessions proctored remotely by our partner ProctorExam to ensure reliable scores.

For candidates:

  • Students, even those who have relocated (students on internships, apprentices outside school, international students, etc.) can take the test from home.
  • Display of the provisional score immediately at the end of the session.
  • A step-by-step guide for the configuration of their computer before and during the test.
  • A solution that respects candidates’ personal data.

Which test will your students take?

Your students will take the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test online in institutional programme, a test that has exactly the same characteristics as the paper-and-pencil version:

  • MCQ of 200 questions, 2 hours;
  • Listening and Reading section;
  • Score scale: 10 to 990 points, CEFR A1 to C1;
  • Administration rules (identification accepted, behaviour during the test).

The TOEIC test online with remote proctoring has helped us overcome the challenges we had before. It is adapted to our changing world, and is in line with pedagogical innovation in education.

Organisation of test sessions and score delivery

You schedule your test sessions for the number of candidates you want based on the availability displayed in the ordering module. Your candidates receive all the information they need to set up their positions before the test day. Your students take the online test from home, they are monitored as well as their screen and environment for the whole duration of the test.

At the end of the test session, the candidates obtain their provisional scores. Any inappropriate behaviour is analysed, if a case of cheating is confirmed, the score will not be communicated to you. The list of validated scores is sent to you by email at least four calendar days after the test session. They are also available on your ETS Global online account.
