A private company has just launched what it calls “the world’s first free standardized English test.” Anyone with an Internet connection can take the test for free.

Quote:
Mr. Tran believes that EFSET meets the highest values in language testing. The test has been through years of research and psychometric analysis. Psychometrics is the method or process of mental measurement.

Quote:
IELTS and TOEFL still use humans to rate the speaking and writing sections. So far, no software program can measure speaking and writing ability as well as a human being.




Here is the test EFSet Home

I gave it a try. Received C2 certification. Compared to TOEFL's ones, reading and listening parts are more difficult, as questions ask to select not only 1, but 2 or more answers.

one more thing that I have seen on the website - it is a CAT test! Those who took the GMAT know what it means!

I agree with the assessment.
However, the lack of Speaking/Writing sections made it a bit easier than TOEFL overall.
Personally, I think the speaking section is the hardest session in TOEFL but that's just me.

Can't disagree. Indeed, the speaking section is the most stressful one, as it gives very little time to prepare and you are asked to provide a response lasting for 45-60 minutes.
During my second attempt (scored 110), after living for >2y in the United States, I have not had problems with Speaking, yet during my first attempt (Scored 94-back in December 2011), I was somehow nervous, taking into consideration that I never ever spoke with someone who did not speak my native/second language.
Writing will seem a piece of cake, though, for those who prepare for GMAT, as the logical construction of the essay is very well-known, and providing reasons for TOEFL writing topics isn't that hard.

Interesting that it's free. I can't believe that with TOEFL I have to pay even for sending my results to schools
