What is the Self Grading Discount? How can TOEFL educators do their own grading?

Speaking and Writing answers on ScoreNexus TOEFL practice tests are graded manually, just like the real test. Most of the time, professional grading by ScoreNexus is included in the price of each TOEFL practice test.

However, there is a different option available under ScoreNexus Educator Plans.

If you sign up for the Silver Plan or Gold Plan, you have the ability to grade the TOEFL practice tests of your own students.

  • You will have access to the ScoreNexus Grade Helper, which is a simple step-by-step process to grade a student’s Speaking or Writing answer.
  • The ScoreNexus Grade Helper can also generate grader comments quickly and easily, so you can painlessly provide comments on how the student can improve.
  • Not only does grading benefit you as a TOEFL educator, but you receive a discount for doing your own grading.
  • Ask for the Self Grading Discount when you sign up under the Silver or Gold Plan, and receive a further discount on each TOEFL practice test!

A note about how grading works:
  • For every ScoreNexus TOEFL practice test, each of the four Speaking answers must be graded from 0 to 4, and each of the two Writing answers must be graded from 0 to 5. After the individual answers are graded, the ScoreNexus system automatically assigns a total section score from 0 to 30. (This is the same process used on the real TOEFL.)
  • Reading and Listening sections are multiple choice. ScoreNexus automatically scores these sections, and students receive these scores immediately after they finish a test. We have constructed our grading curves based on hundreds of data points, so you can be sure that these scores are accurate.
