Scores speaking tests more fairly

While other speaking tests are judged by one person, TOEFL iBT’s speaking responses are scored by multiple trained raters. How does it work? It’s simple. Instead of an in-person interview with a rater from a local testing site, the TOEFL® test asks you to speak 6 times into a microphone. Your responses are recorded, saved, and scored by several ETS raters. With other tests, your interviewer’s mood can impact your score. If he or she has a bad day, you could earn a score you lower than you deserve.

The conversations will be shorter, but note-taking will still be very helpful. In all you will listen to 4 or 6 lectures and 2 or 3 conversations.

Speaking

Speaking section takes 20 minutes only and is the shortest one. It will involve few topics ,in which you have to give your opinion briefly (you will have up to a minute to speak).
