I’ve heard many reports of TOEFL scores being cancelled over the last couple of months because the test-taker “may have received assistance” during the test administration.  The message to test-takers goes something like this:

“We have no reportable score for you from the May 26, 2023 TOEFL iBT Home Edition Administration because you may have received assistance during the test administration.”

and also:

“Please be advised that this type of behavior will not be tolerated and that repeated violations may result in score cancellation and/or your exclusion from future testing”

As best I can understand it, there is no appeal process, no refund and no evidence provided to the test-taker.

It seems like a switch has been flipped in Lawrence Township as the volume of reports I have seen has greatly increased in recent weeks.  Weird.

I always encourage test-takers to stand up for their rights but also to be proactive regarding important deadlines.
