The TOEIC®Listening and Reading

Scores Overview

Test Scores

Scores on the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test are determined by the number of correct answers, which is converted to a scaled score.

The score report provides Listening, Reading and total scaled scores. The total scaled score is derived from adding the two scaled scores together.

For alternate scoring information for test takers with disabilities, please see the Disabilities Accommodations page.

Score Descriptors

The TOEIC® Listening and Reading Score Descriptors (PDF) provide additional information for understanding a test-taker’s strengths and weaknesses and for identifying areas that need improvement.

Understanding Scores

Score Use

Scores are used to measure how well you might do in real-life situations where you are required to listen and read in English.

Score Validity

Scores are used to measure a test taker's English proficiency at the time that a test is administered. Because English-language skills may improve or decline over time, a score report will not be re-issued if two years have passed since taking the test. ETS does not require testing centers to retain test administration data beyond two years.
