Programa de Becas de ETS TOEFL

«English-language Researcher/Practitioner Grant Program»

Purpose

The purpose of the TOEFL English-Language Researcher/Practitioner Grant Program is to enable practitioners to become involved in ETS’s efforts to promote English language learning and to support education and professional development for English-language teachers worldwide through ETS’s assessments and services.

Procedure

Grantees will investigate changes in English-language proficiency levels in relation to teaching and learning in their particular contexts. Chiefly, grantees will:

  • administer a research form of the TOEFL iBT® test, the TOEFL ITP® test, the TOEFL Junior® Standard test or the TOEFL Primary® Listening and Reading tests at least once before and after an instructional period
  • conduct student background surveys (provided by ETS)
  • collect student performance samples, where possible, (e.g., audio or video recordings of speech and/or writing assignments)
  • organize and analyze the test and survey results (technical assistance from ETS is available if needed)
  • write a final report that provides detailed descriptions of the instructional program, the test and survey administrations, any performance samples collected and analysis results

Award Value

Successful applicants will receive funding of US$5,000–$10,000. The exact amount of funding will be commensurate with the scope of the particular research project after determining the duration of the instructional period, the frequency of test administrations, the number of students tested, and the amount of other performance data collected.
