    The new TOEIC Test was first administered in May, 2006 with tasks redesigned to be “more authentic” and “more closely resemble what a person using the language in the real world would have to do.” According to ETS, the new TOEIC test emphasizes authentic language contexts which require learners to use multiple strategies and abilities to comprehend and connect information. While the number of test items and the basic test format are kept unchanged, several major changes are introduced: a shift from individual questions to sets of questions in Part 3, a replacement of error recognition questions by text completion questions in Part 6, the inclusion of questions based on two interrelated passages in Part 7 and a broader range of accents are used in the Listening section. The reason for all these changes is of course part of the test designers' commitment to continually re-evaluating and improving the test, but at the same time, a response to some criticism that there is a weak correlation between a high TOEIC score and the real ability to communicate in English. Time will tell whether, and how well, the new TOEIC test can improve the accuracy in measuring the testtakers' proficiency, but it is clear that the enhancements in the new test do reflect how the language is used in a more authentic setting. It is also clear that the new test will pose new challenges to most testtakers, who have been more or less comfortable with the traditional version of the test for many years.
