This is not ETS® score conversion data - this chart was created by TOEFL Speaking experts My Speaking Score.


Note: It is wrong to conclude that your overall TOEFL® Speaking score is equal to your ETS® SpeechRater™ score from one task, or even many tasks. ETS uses highly-trained human Raters in addition to the SpeechRater™ scoring engine to score your responses on the Speaking section of the TOEFL iBT®


My Speaking Score provides scaled score conversions /30 for information purposes only. You can see what a sample My Speaking Score report looks like here [view].


It's important to note that the correlations above should be used as a rough guideline, as scores on the SpeechRater™ and TOEFL Speaking test may not align perfectly, and the actual score you will receive on the test might be different from the score predicted by SpeechRater™.
