The Scoring of the TOEFL is different for each Section, Question, & Task. For The Reading & Listening Sections of The Exam — your answers will be scored automatically. But for The Speaking & Writing Sections — your answers will be scored by actual humans who are trained & certified in the criteria for the scoring of your Responses.
(Not Actual Certified TOEFL Judges Or Scores)
One other thing that makes The TOEFL Exam unique is that — Since there are so many thousands of Responses that need to be scored every week — just to ensure that The Judges are scoring your Responses correctly — there is also a second line of Judges that makes sure that your Responses are scored properly. (At least, that is what we are told.)
Your Scores will be available On-Line approximately 10 Days After The Exam, and the “hard-copy” of your Scores are mailed directly to The Institution that you selected upon Registration, approximately 2 Weeks After The Exam. However — the actual delivery of your Scores is subject to the competency of the mailing service in each country.
