TOEFL Jr. Comprehensive Test Scrapped

-TOEFL Jr. Standard to Remain-

ETS has decided to stop using the TOEFL Junior Comprehensive. There were troubles with the multi-media part of the exam, so they have decided to stick to the TOEFL Junior Standard for now.

As someone who wrote a textbook on the TOEFL Junior Comprehensive, this is a disappointment. But it is not just because of that–I thought the TOEFL Junior Comprehensive was a good test. Of course, the TOEFL Junior Standard is okay, but measuring speaking was what made the TOEFL Junior Comprehensive better.

The TOEFL Junior Comprehensive will be scrapped as of the end of December 2016.
