The Consistency of "TOEIC"® Speaking Scores across Ratings and Tasks. Research Report. ETS RR-17-46
Schmidgall, Jonathan E.
ETS Research Report Series, Dec 2017
This report briefly reviews the design and scoring procedure for the "TOEIC"® Speaking test and summarizes existing evidence about the consistency of TOEIC Speaking test scores. It then describes several analyses conducted using generalizability theory to provide additional information about the consistency of scores across different aspects of the scoring procedure. The results of these analyses provide more robust information about consistency of TOEIC Speaking scores with respect to important facets of the assessment procedure, such as tasks and ratings. Specifically, the results provide evidence to support claims about the consistency of ratings across different levels of the scoring procedure: tasks, claims, and scale scores.
