• TOAFL adalah singkatan dari “Test of Arabic as Foreign
Language”. Nama ini diilhami oleh TOEFL (Test of English as a
Foreign Language), yang telah ada lebih dahulu. Penamaan ini
memang dimaksudkan agar TOAFL lebih mudah diucapkan dan
dikenal oleh banyak orang, meskipun terkesan “menyerupai”
• Pusat Bahasa (PB) UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta sebetulnya
telah membuat nama untuk tes ini, yaitu “al-Ikhtibârât al‘Arabiyyah li al-Dirâsât al-Islâmiyyah li al-Ajânib” atau “alIkhtibârât fi al-Lughah al-‘Arabiyyah li al-Nâthiqîna bi Ghairihâ”.
Akan tetapi, TOAFL sudah terlanjur lebih dikenal dan populer.
Selain itu, TOAFL sudah menjadi “trademark” atau
“brainmark” PB UIN Jakarta
• Penggunaan TOAFL sebagai materi tes didasarkan pada
kebutuhan akademis bahwa para peserta program S2 dan S3
dituntut mampu dan memiliki standar tertentu dalam
berbahasa asing, utamanya Arab. Selanjutnya, pada
2000/2001, TOAFL juga digunakan sebagai materi tes masuk di
beberapa Program Pascasarjana di luar UIN Jakarta, seperti:
IAIN Palembang, IAIN Lampung, IAIN Mataram, STAIN
Banjarmasin, dan IAIN Padang, bahkan juga PPs. Studi Islam,
Universitas Muhammadiyah Jakarta.
• Saat ini, PB telah memiliki 8 edisi/form TOAFL; dua di
antaranya telah dijadikan sebagai bahan pelatihan TOAFL dan
yang empat masih “dijaga kerahasiaannya” untuk digunakan
sebagai bahan tes.
