This is the softcpy document of TOEFL® iBT Writing Sample Responses
There are two writing tasks on the next generation TOEFL Internet-based test (iBT). The first is an integrated task that requires test takers to read, listen, and then write in response to what they have read and heard. The second is an independent task where test takers support an opinion on a topic.
Below is an example of each type, responses at each score level, with annotations that explain why the response received its score. The rubric or scoring guide for Writing describes the characteristics of responses at each level for both independent and integrated writing tasks.
Task 1: The Reading-Listening-Writing Integrated Task
Via computer delivery, examinees are given some time to read and take notes if they wish about a reading passage. They then listen to a lecture and are allowed to take notes during the lecture. The reading passage then reappears along with a question and examinees are given 20 minutes to key in their responses.
The reading passage remains present and examinees can use their notes. Examinees are told in the instructions in advance of this writing task
- that their response will be evaluated for content (accuracy and completeness), and for appropriate use of language and sentence structure;
- that their response should show that they understand the major ideas and important information in the passage and lecture, and their relationship; and
- that “This writing task is not asking for your opinion; it is asking you to give an answer, in an organized and well-written way, based on the information in the passage you read and short lecture you heard.”
- that typically an effective response would be 150-225 words.
