Scoring:

  • Speaking - You respond to the questions by speaking into the microphone to record your responses. Responses are scored by the SpeechRater™ program, designed as an automated scoring system for the TOEFL® Practice Speaking tests. This program uses speech recognition and processing technology to evaluate important features of your spoken responses. Scores and performance feedback are posted online within the same day, usually within minutes. The SpeechRater™ program uses all six of your responses to determine your overall spoken abilities on this test based on pronunciation, fluency, vocabulary, and grammar features. These features represent a subset of the criteria currently evaluated by human raters for the Speaking Section of the TOEFL® iBT. SpeechRater™ scores for these features from the six responses are combined. The total score is then converted to a score on a scale from 0-30. The reported score for the Speaking Section of the TOEFL® iBT will also always be on this scale of 0-30. The SpeechRater™ Scores have been found to be related to the human scores produced using the scoring criteria for the Speaking Section of the TOEFL® iBT.
