Hi Friends,

Anyone know will a person or the computer rate our writing?

I am going to copy exactly templates of who scored high. I think if it is like GMAT, these templates will work. But if a person rate our writing, what if we use the same templates?

Thank you in advance.

Hi. This is Joseph from the NoteFull team and this is a great question.

Each essay you write is evaluated by a grader and a computerized e-rater for the TOEFL.

ETS tends not to be clear on the exact details of how the speaking or writing sections are rated. In fact, even if you call ETS's phone number for TOEFL support (which we have), different reps will answer questions differently. This information was released in an article more than a year ago but it's tough to find. I wanted to locate it to post here but wasn't able to.

To address your second question, templates do work. But, they might not do what you expect.

Templates serve the purpose of providing structure. For the erater and the human grader, templates are fine. However, they don't make your score higher. They simply provide a basic structure to your responses so that your answers flow logically. Your content determines your score more than anything else, not the template. We teach templates and have students follow them 100% for two reasons.

1) Having a template ensures that you have the basic structure to respond logically and clearly to get a perfect score if your content deserves it. There are many different templates. Just pick one. The difference does not matter, as long as you're comfortable with it.

2) Having a template eliminates one variable, so you will be able to perform better. If you have a good, clear, tested template memorized for the speaking and writing--just as having a clear strategy of answering for the reading and listening--you'll have one less thing to think about or create while speaking or writing your answers.

In response to your request for templates in a different topic you posted, we're going to post the templates that appear in our popular "NoteFull TOEFL Mastery" YouTube videos within a few days. Please look out for them in the forum.

We hope this response helped. Let us know and good luck on your TOEFL studies! Reply if you have any other questions or concerns about what we said here.
