One way to approach validity is to conduct a local study that establishes a relationship between TOEFL scores and the linguistic and curricular demands faced by students once they 15 Swinton, 1983. have enrolled in classes. Given the variety of educational programs, it would be impossible to design a validity study that is universally relevant to all institutions. Rather, the TOEFL program has undertaken a large-scale study that assesses the linguistic needs of international students in a variety of discrete academic settings.
