According to the ETS website, the TOEFL iBT™ Special Home Edition and GRE™ General Test at-home solutions are now accessible to international test-takers who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
These tests are currently available wherever the computer-delivered TOEFL iBT™ and GRE General test are usually available, except for Mainland China and Iran. ETS is closely working with NEEFA in Mainland China to help those whose tests were canceled due to the corona pandemic by adding test dates once test centers re-open. ETS is hoping to offer an at-home testing solution in Iran in the very near future.
More about the different at-home test options
There are two types of at-home testing: one using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, and the other using ProctorU’s live human remote proctoring service. Whichever type of test is taken, at-home tests are identical to those taken at a test center, including scoring and pricing. Students will have all of the test features they would expect at a test center, including the ability to review and change answers as well as preview and skip questions.
Registration is now open for test dates through June 2020. There are many test dates and times for students to choose from.
ETS is doing everything possible to be sure that at-home tests meet the ultimate standards for validity, reliability, and security. They employ numerous high-level security measures using real-time human observation and AI technology.
Students can sign in or create an ETS account to register for either the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition Test or the at-home GRE General Test. They can select and pay for their test, after which they will receive an email from ProctorU telling them how to schedule a test date and time.
