Understanding TOEFL
TOEFL stands for Test Of Home as a Foreign Language. TOEFL is a standardized English language ability of a person in writing (de jure), which covers four aspects of mastery: Listening, Writing and Reading. TOEFL scoring system using the conversion of each correct answer. The highest TOEFL score one can achieve is 675.
The purpose of TOEFL
TOEFL has two general objectives are: Academic and General. In the same form, TOEFL certification recommendation could use for both. Academic tests are used for educational purposes, research or related academic activities abroad, or in Indonesia. For post-graduate, usually a minimum value is 550. while for S1 is 500. General is generally used for the purpose of employment, promotion or job assignment. Many companies that install the English language standard employees by looking at TOEFL score – his. Generally, a minimum TOEFL score is 500 for a standard promoted.
As far as I encountered, the range of TOEFL scores – average Indonesian people with minimal education level S1 is very volatile. There are even some who do not know what and for what it is TOEFL (they read: “tufl”). Not so with the decision-English majors in college. At least they know what is a TOEFL. However, TOEFL score of a student or graduate English majors does not guarantee high. In some cases recruiment times, I found some applicants get the TOEFL score of 300, whereas in the proposal, the person concerned is an alumni of the ABA (Foreign Language Academy). While in general, fluctuations in the average TOEFL score – rating ranges from 300 to 600.
Indeed, all this is still popular (especially among students – pen) is a Test Of Home as Foreign Language (TOEFL). Especially in the ITS, which are well known tests are wrong ‘bogey’ for potential graduates. Understandably, the standards set forth herein, most considered ‘decent’ high at 450. As a result, it was an absolute requirement met for students who wish to graduate soon. “Can score of 450 have been grateful,” the statement had ever heard of a student of ITS. What needs to be seen is its positive impact. Actually this test is very useful, especially for graduates who wish to work in the company. Because, at this time almost all companies set the standard TOEFL as the main requirement to fill vacancies which they attach. TOEFL has become a necessity.
However, there are some things that need to be underlined. One is the standard used in the TOEFL assessment of each place is not the same. So, can not serve as the main criterion for equating the TOEFL between the A to the B. Therefore, it could be their equal ability, it’s just the level of assessment tests differ from each other.
