How can teachers grade student answers?

Speaking and Writing answers on the TOEFL are graded manually. We have professional graders who can do this, or you can do it yourself. Although at first you may not be as good as our professional graders, you can quickly become accurate.

We have the ScoreNexus Grading System available on your Teacher Dashboard that can calculate a student’s grade based on simple step-by-step instructions. This system can also generate grader comments quickly and easily, so you can painlessly provide professional-grade comments.

Just like the real TOEFL, each of the six 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.

Note: 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.
