2. Toeic reading test score

The Toeic test is not the kind of test that you pass or fail. There will be no penalty for questions you answered wrongly, hence, it’s recommended that you should answer every question even if you are not sure about your answer. The test results indicate your English proficiency level in reading skills.

In Toeic reading, the score is determined by the number of correct answers, which is then converted to a scaled score ranging from 5 to 495 points.

When evaluating a quality assessment, the scoring process is an essential factor. ETS uses a strict process to make sure that the results are fair and reliable. Students’ test responses are sent through a secure online system. 

The reading skill is evaluated by using multiple choice questions to ensure objective marks. Grading multiple choice answer sheets is an automated process and its preciseness is ensured by the quality control procedures.
