Scoring in TOEFL
For calculating TOEFL scores, both human raters and automated scoring methods are used. This is done in order to offer a complete and accurate picture of the candidate’s ability. While the automated scoring method has the advantage of being unbiased, it does not measure the effectiveness of the language and content. Human raters are required to attend to a wider variety of features, such as the quality of ideas and content as well as form.
The four section scores of the TOEFL are divided as follow:
|Section||Score Range||Mean Scores*|
You will receive an email when your scores are available, which would be 10 days after your test date. You can log in to your TOEFL iBT account on the TOEFL Registration website to see your scores. Printed score reports will be mailed approximately 13 days after your test date.
Your scores are valid for two years and can be sent to other higher education institutions during that time.
