Why does the world need another English test?

We created iTEP because we heard again and again for many years that administrators needed a new test. They didn’t feel that the English assessment options available were sufficiently innovating to keep up with the times. Feedback from our partners remains very important to us. We’d like to share a few comments with you.

iTEP is a great alternative to the TOEFL, TOEIC, and IELTS tests. This exam is welcome proof that you can achieve accurate assessment of English proficiency in less time and at a significantly lower cost. iTEP measures all key skills and features an intuitive, user-friendly interface, the convenience of on-demand scheduling, and results presented in a clear score report.

It’s not often that one sees a fresh, credible, and innovative entry into the small catalog of English proficiency tests suitable for university-level admissions purposes. I find iTEP to be well-conceived, comprehensive, and user-friendly. International applicants will appreciate its convenience, efficiency, and affordable price.

In our experience, iTEP provides an accurate and reliable assessment of non-native students’ ability to function in an English-speaking educational environment. We expect that as it is introduced to additional institutions, it will soon be widely recognized throughout the United States.

Having thoroughly acquainted myself with the features of iTEP and considering its merits in comparison with the other English tests we recognize (TOEFL and IELTS), I added iTEP to our list of approved English language proficiency tests in summer of 2009. Based on my review of and experience with iTEP, I am pleased to recommend it.

iTEP offers significant benefits to both international applicants and US colleges and universities. Applicants like the fact that an individual iTEP exam can be scheduled within 3 days, and that the test costs only $99. Our office appreciates the turnaround of results and the clear, informative score report.
