Standardized tests like the TOEFL provide sufficient information to determine whether students should be admitted to a college or university.
I definitely agree with the following statement that standardized tests like the TOEFL provide sufficient information to determine whether students should be admitted to a college or a university. Preparing for the tests, we revise our knowledge of the reading, listening, and reading elements of the language. In addition, universities and colleges are interested in these tests because they can see students' knowledge of academic English. To begin with, in my view, the most important part of these tests is the writing component. It is absolutely vital for prospective students to know how to properly write essays in English. For instance, they will have to write research papers or a final thesis at a university. Writing without mistakes is a skill, which we are able to get only to write more and more essays by ourselves. In summary, these kinds of tests may estimate eventual students' knowledge of the writing item. Secondly, a listening part of language is important too.For example, preparing for English evaluation tests, we prepare ourselves for eventual lectures, conversations with classmates, and an advisor. Also, this part is truly important to live in English-speaking countries. So, even though you are good at writing it is important to be good at the section too. In addition, the reading chunk is no less important than the other parts, which I have described above. For example, students who work at university do not limit only to writing papers and listening to lectures, it also provides reading a lot of scientific materials. Reading skills is able to help you to get new essential information from books, articles, notices, and passages. Then, to pass these kinds of tests, universities or colleges are able to evaluate your ability in academic English. It is essential for them to know that their future student could fluently speak, understand lectures and write scientific papers.
