TOEP Scheduling

  • Students must register for the TOEP at least one week prior to the exam date. Registration closes seven days before each exam date.
  • The TOEP is offered at the end of each quarter.
  • It is recommended that students take the TOEP as early as possible and not wait until the quarter before they want to work as a TA.
  • TOEP Registration is first come, first served. Students who register early will have the best opportunity to find a time that works the best for their schedules. IAE cannot accommodate every student's individual schedule, so students need to plan ahead and register for the TOEP as early as possible.
  • TOEP scores are made available to all test takers and their departments about a week after the test date.

Register for the TOEP

Sign up for the TOEP by completing the following steps.
  1. Register for a test session using this calendar. When you register, you will be asked the reason for your appointment. You can just enter "TOEP" as the appointment reason. If all of the available appointments are full, please send an email with your availability for the week of March 18-22 to iae@ucdavis.edu so we can try to find a time to add a session for you.
  2. Read about the TOEP and how to prepare for it using the TOEP Overview
    Note: Students who have not sufficiently prepared for all parts of the TOEP will not be permitted to take the test and, depending on schedule availability, may not be able to take the TOEP until the following quarter.
  3. Download the document for part 2: document for Winter 2019. During the exam, you will introduce this assignment to your class and explain to them what they would need to do to complete the assignment.
  4. Prepare for the TOEP. You may want to meet with an IAE Language & Culture Coach to practice.
  5. Report to 1350 The Grove 15 minutes prior to your testing appointment. Bring your copy of the document for part 2 and your Student ID. You may also want to bring a bottle of water in case you need it during the exam.
