The Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) is a set of standardized language proficiency test developed for non-native speakers of Chinese that has already served test-takers from more than 60 countries. It is the result of a joint project of the Mandarin Training Center, the Graduate Institute of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, and Research Center for Psychological and Educational Testing of National Taiwan Normal University. The research project began in 2001, and the first TOCFL tests were held in 2003. A new version of TOCFL was developed in 2008 and became available in 2013.

The new version of the TOCFL has three proficiency bands: Band A, Band B, and Band C. Each band is divided into two levels making a total of six levels: Levels 1 to Level 6. The items on the test of each level are 50 multiple choice items, to be answered in 60 minutes.  Test-takers can choose the level that best suits their Chinese Language proficiency and learning background.
