CEFR Mapping Study
The purpose of this mapping study was to identify the minimum TOEFL ITP Level 1 test scores corresponding to four levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The table below presents the scaled cut scores for each section:
TOEFL ITP score ranges (Level
1–310 to 677 pts)
|CEFR Levels||TOEFL ITP Overall Performance Descriptors|
Proficient User — Effective Operational Proficiency
Independent User — Vantage
Independent User — Threshold
Basic User — Waystage
Note: The cut scores represent the minimum scores needed to enter the CEFR levels. These recommendations are based on the results of mapping studies with expert panels, and data analyses of test taker scores.
Award Your Students a Certificate That Recognizes Their Achievement
You can recognize your students' achievement in English-language proficiency with three levels of certificates awarded by the TOEFL ITP program. Each TOEFL ITP certificate corresponds to a CEFR level.
