ETS原文:

In response to feedback about the length of the TOEFL iBT® reading section, ETS will decrease the maximum number of reading passages from five to four beginning November 1, 2011. You will have either 60 minutes to complete three reading passages and questions, or 80 minutes to complete four reading passages and questions.

In addition, the Reading section will no longer be divided into separately timed parts. Instead, all of the Reading passages and questions will be made available to you in a single block of time. This change will allow you to pace yourself throughout the entire Reading section. It will also allow you to navigate within the entire Reading section so you can skip questions, go back to review and change responses, or respond to questions that you may have skipped.
