Support Learning with an Advanced Spoken-Response Scoring Application
Developed by the experts behind the TOEFL® test, the SpeechRater® service uses advanced speech recognition and analysis technology to assess and provide detailed feedback about specific aspects of a nonnative speaker’s speaking proficiency that other automated assessments can’t — all while improving on the scoring times and fairness of human raters.
The SpeechRater service is used in the TOEFL iBT® test, which services the TOEFL test Massive Open Online Course, "TOEFL® Test Preparation: The Insider's Guide," to provide a speaking score range to participants who complete a set of speaking tasks in the practice test by measuring spontaneous speech. Measuring spontaneous speech is a more valid indicator of the learner's ability in a target language environment, since it's similar to the types of communication they will have in academic and workplace environments.
