ETS - Shortage of teachers

1.6
Details
How does a college graduate make 3.8 but can’t pass a praxis after teaching for 3 years and each student make growth? I’ve taken the praxis 10 times at 146$ per time. I have the passion for my students but legalistic or red tape is preventing this. I’ve been as close as 3 points. How in the world can a company get away with doing this?

Update by user Jan 20, 2018

I got a reply from the TOEFL admin because I complained in this forum. The complaint I had registered on the TOEFL website was completely ignored.

Anyway, in the reply that I received, the person had failed to understand my problem. The problem is that my score...

I am appalled at E.T.S. Testing Services.

They, have unfair testing practices and this is why they can not/ will not explain whether verbally or written how you received the score you got. They are a money making scam!!!

I can not believe our school systems rely on them completely. It is a disgrace.

These test are a scam to get money. I have took test about 4 times and miss each one between 4 to 10 points. There are about 13 versions of each test and most of the questions are irrelevant and have nothings to do with teaching. I am tired of wasting money on these...

same here taken math praxis four times, going in for number 5, and if there is a class action suit I'm in. I talked to a math professor who said it a conceptual test , not based on you math knowledge, and they did away with hand held calculators to get rid on teacher applicants.

ETS in Sharjah, Sharjah - Computer hanged in the middle of the exam for more than an hour

1.0
Details
1) I arrived more than 60 minutes early, but the testing centre was extremely unorganised! My test started almost 1 hours late due to which i already got exhausted. 2) Second problem was, it was so unorganised that most of the student already started the exam, took their break, and finished at different times. It was almost impossible to concentrate with people going in and out of the room, and having to hear others saying their responses in different sections of the test. I found this extremely distracting and annoying. 3) Headphones provided were of not fine quality, they did not had good noise cancellation, i have used many top qualities headphone like Bose Quitecomfort, Beats etc but the one provided at the testing centre was of no match contrast to the noise cancellation; it was very irritating for me trying to concentrate on reading while the guy next to me speaking on his speaking section. 4) The most important reason is while i was already stressed out due to unorganised noisy environment, i was giving my listening section exam my computer suddenly hanged. I asked Procter to rectify but she asked me to wait and said its not her fault but ets’s error. The Procter was highly uncooperative and rude to me. Since i waited for more than 1 hour to rectify the error in the middle of the exam i was super exhausted and wanted to eat and drink but she didn’t allowed me to eat, drink water or even go to the washroom which ruined the rest of my exam.

TOEFL ETS is a business to collect money with horrible customer service

First of all, I am taking TOEFL IBT since 2016 every two weeks, more than times till now. I am studying in English since I was 5 years old, I am a foreign graduate pharmacist with a GPA 3.93. I need a score of 22 in reading, 21 in listening, 26 in speaking, 24 in writing. I got the requirements score bit not in on set. I used to get 25 in reading, 27 in listening, 24 in speaking and 25 in writing. Once I start to pass in speaking my score drop in writing and I do not think this is normal. when my score in speaking is 27 my writing score is 23, and when my score in speaking 26 my writing score is 22, and so on. Plus I never had normal test conditions, for example, on time I have the test administrator refused to change my paper in the listening section telling me only after the break she can change it!!!!! Also, one time the test administrator interrupted me during the speaking section telling me my voice is too loud, an I should decrease my volume!!!!!!!! And many times have the trouble that the headphones and the microphone break up during the speaking and the listening section. I will sue TOEFL IBT AND ETS, this English exam is not serving for educational purpose, It is a business taking advantage f foreigners, and we should not accept this any more.

Has anybody taken further action on this? I am still arguing that this same sistuaion under a little different circumstance, that happened to me was a form of discrimination.

I fought and actually took the test that day, but my mind was definitely not on there. I had prepared for the test for months. Then they never sent me any email saying they actually cancelled my scores, then customer service forwarded to someone in "test integrity" hung up on me.

Then they have sent me a vague letter while I respond with very details of how their practices are ridiculous when they want everyone to have same form of identity. Being a college graduate, an immigrant, and someone who aspires to continue higher education I was straight up given the message that I have no access to graduate school of my choices because of things out of control on my end in regards to immigration status.

ETS in Dallas, Texas - POOR SYSTEM! Result Cancellation

I reported to the center at least an hour earlier before my exam but I forgot to bring my passport. So they not allowed me to enter for the exam. I went back and get my passport in time to show them everything I have; driving license, green card, SSN and passport. I finally completed the test. After 5 weeks waiting, now the ets told me I failed to show them my identity before the exam and they are going to cancel my test, they wont be able to send me the official scores. I explained to them about the whole incident. But they are pushing to other party for the miscommunication and holding my scores. What are the system is this and it takes so long to get back to me on this matter. I have delayed my registration to the university. The customer care never update me with any email I sent. Please improve!

I had a very bad experience taking GRE. I accidentally clicked "cancel score" and cannot go back to change the response. The test center told that I can report the scores AFTER the test, not IN THE END of the test. The testing center didn't really explain the process....
