There will be no change to the difficulty level or total testing time. There will be no changes in the administration of the test. The score report will remain unchanged with the exception of one additional Listening Ability Measured: Understanding a speaker’s purpose or implied meaning in a phrase or sentence. The addition of the new Listening Ability Measured does not affect a test taker’s overall score. Scores will continue to be comparable across test administrations.
