What are the benefits to doing our own grading?

If you are a ScoreNexus Member, you can assign tests to any Student account you create.

The tests you assign can be graded by ScoreNexus, or you may choose to grade them yourself. It is of course more hassle-free if we grade your tests for you.

However, there are several reasons why you may want to grade tests on your own:

  1. You save money. We pay our graders well in order to give you professional results. If you grade on your own, your cost per test drops significantly because we pass on our savings to you.
  2. Not too much pain, but a lot of gain. We train you to use our ScoreNexus Grading System, which uses an easy step-by-step approach. So, grading is not too difficult.
    However, doing this task makes you a better TOEFL teacher. The more tests you grade, you more you gain valuable insight as to how TOEFL grading works. This, in turn, allows you to pass on better advice to your students.
  3. Most significantly, you can give your students better service. When you grade a student’s test, you see firsthand the tendencies, good and bad, of the student. You can tell which mistakes the student is making. You will know if your student is taking your advice.
    You can then mark up the essays and make extensive comments on each of the student’s answers (as made easy by our ScoreNexus Grading System).
    This type of personalized input is invaluable for your student.
