Menaul School English Proficiency Standards
TOEFL, TOEFL Jr. and other standardized English test scores are used to determine each student’s English proficiency. These test scores, ESL curriculum placement tests and personal interview are all factors that are used together to determine the student’s level of English proficiency. The chart below is a general guide we will use when reviewing an applicant’s test scores.
Testing Placement Guide
|Course||TOEFL Jr. – Standard||TOEFL – iBT||CEFR Equivalent|
|Intermediate||Mostly A2 for all sections, occasionally A1 for Listening and Reading|
|Advanced||Mostly B1 for all sections, Occasionally A2|
|** Regular English||B1 for All Sections|
*Please Note: A students’ test score is NOT the final determining factor for promotion to the next level. The decision will be made in conjunction with classroom performance and teacher recommendations.
** Students who are transitioning into a Regular English class mid-year generally struggle much more in the adjustment compared to those who begin in the Fall. Therefore, a student entering Regular English in January should have a TOEFL Jr. score well above 800.
