How the test is scored

The TOEFL iBT Paper Edition is only scored by a centralized scoring network, never at the test center. The Reading and Listening sections are scored by computer. The Writing section is scored by human raters. The Speaking section is scored by a combination of AI scoring and multiple, highly trained human raters to:

  • offer a complete and accurate picture of your ability
  • minimize the rater bias that can occur with face-to-face interviews
  • ensure consistency and the highest quality


MyBest® scores

If you took the TOEFL iBT Paper Edition, your MyBest scores will only include scores from your Paper Edition tests. The report won’t include your scores from tests taken at a test center or at home (TOEFL iBT Home Edition).
