ICU Service Co., Ltd. manages and operates TOEIC IP (Institutional Program) Test, on behalf of ICU, for the students and the staffs at ICU.
The TOEIC test (Test of English for International Communication) was conceived in Japan and created by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), a U.S. nonprofit test development institution, as a common global yardstick for measuring English skills for non-native speakers. Since the first TOEIC Secure Program (SP) test was implemented in December 1979, the test has been adopted not only throughout Japan but around the world as the global standard for English communication skill assessment. Many companies, schools, and other organizations, as well as individuals, are currently utilizing the test as an effective way to raise the motivation to study, and as an opportunity to check the English skill levels of their workers and students. The test is administered in some 150 countries around the world. (TOEIC Home Page)
