14 January 2018 India 3 out of 4 Question2 None

This somewhat uneven response demonstrates clear understanding of the question. The speaker provides relevant content, as in this excerpt, “Internet plays a very essential role to know about current events that’s happening worldwide. “ However, there are also sections that show a lack of precision in language and syntax that interfere with meaning, as in this excerpt, “Not everyone has got much time to stick in front of television to know about the news or I must say they don’t have enough time to watch television. “ The speaker is encouraged to slow the pace of delivery. The speed of delivery seems to have led to repetition and confusion in the information shared.

The delivery of this response is halting, and there seem to be words or phrases necessary for meaning missing from the sentences, as in this excerpt, “So many lovers want to go there, because it is a place where so many lovers … time off spending their life.” The speaker is encouraged to avoid the personal introduction at the start of the response, and focus on development of the topic, which will raise the score. Additional focus should be placed on vocabulary and syntax to ensure the clarity of ideas and precision of language.

14 January 2018 Mexico 2 out of 4 Question1 None

The delivery of this response is halting, with frequent pauses and repetition of words and phrases, indicating limitations in vocabulary. The pauses interfere with meaning as listener effort is required to decode meaning, as in this excerpt, “I know…a little place in my country…this name…and I think visitors will..there…”  The speaker includes basic descriptors, but does not clearly name a location, which further limits the response. Because of the issues with development and delivery, the score is 2.

14 January 2018 India 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately. The speech is generally clear, but the pace increases as the response progresses, so that by the last segment, many words are obscured, as in this excerpt, “The parks…..has so many symmetries..from ….British period.” Grammar is fairly automatic and syntax is varied where it is discernible. The score is three because of the obscured words and phrases at the end. The speaker is encouraged to monitor the pace of delivery.

10 January 2018 Turkey 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately. The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary and grammatical structures and is somewhat limited in the range of structures used, as in this excerpt, “The culture of Turkey seem different all from the others. People want to see this. “ There are one or two main points made about “cultural differences,” but little elaboration. Because of the consistent errors in grammar and syntax and limits in development, the score is 3.

8 January 2018 Brazil 3 out of 4 Question2

This response offers some relevant development. Delivery is halting and imprecise at times because of error in grammar and syntax, as in this excerpt, “On the other side the television you just have the one that you listen that you see from the TV and its harder.” Sentences of this type “telegraph” information but do not clearly state the speaker’s point so that listener must decode. Grammar is inconsistent and word choice is basic. Sentences are incomplete or not clearly indicated. Because of the strength of some details, some raters might consider this a “low” 3, while others would score it a 2. To ensure a passing score, focus on delivery and on fluid, precise sentences.

8 January 2018 Brazil 2 out of 4 Question1

This response shows an attempt at relevant and thorough development. Delivery is halting and limited by frequent pauses that interfere with meaning and require listener effort to decode.  There are frequent repetitions as the speaker attempts to correct errors, which leads to a disjointed response and detracts from meaning, as in this excerpt, “You can go to the beach…in the…on the day…and you can have the nice weather…it’s warm…and…and…” Because of these repetitions and long pauses, the score is 2. The speaker is encouraged to focus on fluid delivery and to practice moving through minor errors, which will have less of an impact on the score than repetitions.

8 January 2018 Turkey 2 out of 4 Question1

This limited response shows a command of pronunciation, but very little development. There is significant repetition of a few words, and sparse description so that the location and reasons are not adequately developed beyond a simple expression of opinion, as in this excerpt, “Amazing place to visit. Everybody like it.” Grammatical structures are inconsistent with frequent errors throughout, as in this excerpt, “Everybody like it.  Everybody love it. It simply the amazing place,” which includes multiple verb errors. Because of the consistent pattern of errors and lack of development the score is 2.

6 January 2018 Algeria 3 out of 4 Question2 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but falls short of being fully developed. The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “So the internet websites, YouTube, you can be able to know anything you want at any time you want. “Response is mostly coherent and sustained and conveys relevant ideas/information. Because of the limits in development and consistent errors in grammar, the score is 3.

5 January 2018 India 3 out of 4 Question2 None

There is some relevant content in this response, but much is obscured by the lack of clarity in the development, as in this excerpt, “The television will focus only on the regional news on the regional languages, where will miss…and it comes on at a specified time when we will be available at home. “ Pronunciation is very good and intonation is appropriate. Grammar is imprecise at times and the range of vocabulary is somewhat limited in delivery. Because of the issues with clarity the score is 3.

A significant portion of this is read from the Wikipedia page for Constantine. For this test, test-takers must speak from their own knowledge of the topic, rather than read from a text. This response is not eligible for a score as the speaker's use of grammar and vocabulary cannot be assessed.

The response addresses the task appropriately. Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, or pacing are noticeable and require listener effort at times, as in this excerpt, “It’s a great place for adventure and honeymoon destination, set on…? “The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. There is some lack of precision in grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “You can enjoy this place by visiting; it’s a cold weather.” To improve the score the speaker should focus on pronunciation and grammar.

11 December 2017 United States 4 out of 4 Question2

The response fulfills the demands of the task, with at most minor lapses in completeness. It is highly intelligible and exhibits sustained, coherent discourse. It begins with a strong statement of preference and reasoning with this excerpt, “The news which we see on television comes from authentic sources. “ Vocabulary is precise and varied, showing a broad understanding of language. If there is a weakness, it is pacing, which neglects clear delineation at sentence endings, which can cause confusion. The score is 4 but the speaker is cautioned to monitor pace and intonation, as more rapid pace, combined with the relative monotone intonation could lower the score.

10 December 2017 Mexico 2 out of 4 Question2 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. The primary issues are in mechanics, precision, and pacing, as in this excerpt, “I think the best way to learn about current events is by watching television is because it’s the information more true and more….more …?” Language communicates information vaguely, as in this excerpt, “Because if you watch different information by internet you can get wrong information and maybe in television equal but having its better…” so that significant listener effort and decoding is required to determine meaning. The score is 2.

10 December 2017 Turkey 3 out of 4 Question2 None

It is not completely clear that the speaker understands that “current events” refers to news, as she inventories a range of different sources of information, and not all are related to “news.” The delivery is sustained, with only brief pauses, but there are few meaningful connections between ideas, other than using the transition, “also.”  There are some minor grammatical errors, in addition to the pauses, as in this excerpt, “There are a great deal of social media sites…that you can see…what’s going on.” Because of the lack of clarity on the main point of the meaning of “current events” and these minor errors the score is 3.

7 December 2017 Mexico 3 out of 4 Question2 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas. The speaker clearly shows a preference, but seems to develop confusion in the explanation of the difference between people on TV being paid to say things and the contrast with people on the internet who “may lie.” The resolution to that issue is not developed clearly. The score is 3.

7 December 2017 Paraguay 4 out of 4 Question2 None

The response fulfills the demands of the task, with at most minor lapses in completeness. It is highly intelligible and exhibits sustained, coherent discourse. The speaker clearly states a preference and provides explanation, as in this excerpt, “You’ll find the biggest one like CNN or CBS, but also the different media or people representing a different opinion than mainstream media that is always on the television. “ The lapses in grammar are noticeable, but do not interfere with meaning so that most raters would score this a 4.

11 December 2017 United States 3 out of 4 Question1

The response addresses the task appropriately but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas, as in this excerpt, “Also there is a park imprint in Taj Mahal and we find …in the middle…fountains in it…”  Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, or pacing are noticeable, especially in the rapid pace with little indication of sentence delineation. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “Last year I have visited this place in July.” Because of these minor, but consistent errors, the score is 3. 

Picture of Guillermo Núñez Guillermo Núñez

10 December 2017 Mexico 2 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. It contains intelligible speech, although problems with delivery and/ or overall coherence occur; meaning is obscured in places. The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary. These limitations often prevent full expression of idea, as in this excerpt, “A beautiful place in a magic town for its culture…and there are too much people that has a different culture from the other people.” Because many sentences lack clear meaning and there are few central ideas in the descriptions, the score is 2.

10 December 2017 Turkey 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but may fall short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas.  The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “There is a great deal of historical sites and there beautiful beaches to go to it seaside. “  Overall development is somewhat limited, lacking in elaboration or specificity. The score is 3.

7 December 2017 Paraguay 2 out of 4 Question1 None

Unfortunately the sound quality of the response is problematic, which, combined with the rapid pace of speech and influence of the speaker’s first language on pronunciation makes it difficult to understand many parts of the response. Some parts are obscured, as in this excerpt, “This is one of the most famous in the world and people really enjoy the … rain forest and the ….”  Because the full response cannot be assessed, the score is 2. In actual scoring this would likely be sent back for “technical difficulties” and not scored. 

Picture of Paola DA Paola DA

7 December 2017 Mexico 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but may fall short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas. The most noticeable lapse is in one of introductory sentences, “It’s a place where kids go…and…they play in many machines. “ The response is, overall, coherent, and there is fluidity of expression. The pacing is adequate, while pronunciation sometimes requires listener effort. Sentences are typically short, but correct, as in this excerpt, “The machines have many games. You just have to pay for a card, and the card will give you points instead of your money.” This is a “high 3” or “low 4” response primarily because of the problem with clarity early in the response.

6 December 2017 Turkey 4 out of 4 Question1 None

The response fulfills the demands of the task, with at most minor lapses in completeness. It is highly intelligible and exhibits sustained, coherent discourse.  The response demonstrates effective use of grammar and vocabulary. It exhibits a fairly high degree of automaticity with good control of basic and complex structures, for example, the parallel construction in this sentence, “It’s one of the oldest buildings in the world, it’s a very unique place, and it has great architecture.” Response is sustained and sufficient to the task. It is generally well developed and coherent; relationships between ideas are clear. This is an exemplary response.

6 December 2017 Brazil 4 out of 4 Question1 None

The response fulfills the demands of the task, with at most minor lapses in completeness. The response is very well paced with clear speech. There are very minor lapses in syntax, such as in this sentence, “. Everybody loves to meet there and to do picnics there…” where the idiomatic expression would be “have picnics…” but these very minor issues do not detract from clarity or meaning. The response demonstrates effective use of grammar and vocabulary. It exhibits a fairly high degree of automaticity with good control of basic and complex structures (as appropriate). This is clearly a top scoring response.

3 December 2017 Turkey 2 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. Speech is basically intelligible, though listener effort is needed because of unclear articulation and choppy rhythm/pace, as in this excerpt, “Its like …the valuable of the Islamic era…and the…..empire..was the best…for the Arabs and Islam.” The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary, and the speaker clearly reaches for vocabulary at times as in this excerpt, “It’s in the middle of Damascus, old Damascus, the tourists like to visit it because of the …old building and traditional stuff.” Because of the limitations in development, vocabulary, and delivery, the score is 2. Intonation is excellent, so the speaker is encouraged to focus on the mechanics of speech to raise the score.

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. It contains intelligible speech, although there are problems with delivery and/ or overall coherence, as in this excerpt, “Vera Cruz in Mexico in my country is …popular place to the tourists …and that’s why …because…”  Speech is basically intelligible, though listener effort is needed because of unclear articulation and choppy rhythm/pace;  The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary. There are long pauses as the speaker reaches for vocabulary, so that the response is telegraphic at times, with disjointed sentence structure. The score is 2.

29 November 2017 Turkey 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression. There is little connection between the facts shared about the location, as in this excerpt, “For example, there is a mosaic museum…we…have…also the old city is very nice…there’s being sold all the traditional stuff in that place…especially the beach…” which leads to listener confusion. There are frequent pauses and filler sounds which interfere with the fluidity of delivery. The score is 3.

29 November 2017 Mexico 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but may fall short of being fully developed. Development is minimal and marked by repetition and a lack of connection between ideas as in this, the main content, “People really love the city because the people are sweet. The buildings have many stories and the food is really good.” Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression. The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, although vocabulary is clearly limited, as demonstrated by the repetition of the word, “really.”

The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent. Speech is clear at times, though it exhibits problems with pacing, as in this excerpt, “This castle in an old monument and people love to visit it because …its renewed and ….it provides …a lot of activities for a …range of activities…for young people…and the elderly.” The limited number of details are relevant. The pacing is slow and interrupted by long pauses. Because of the issue with pacing, the score is 3.

The response addresses the task appropriately. Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, or pacing are noticeable, as in the word “precises” rather than precise in this excerpt, “You can have different information and precises information.”  The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “Internet I think it has become bigger I think than television.” Because of these issues, the score is 3.

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. It contains intelligible speech, although problems with delivery and/ or overall coherence occur; meaning is obscured in places, as in this excerpt, “I think you computer. And access…” It is not clear that the speaker understands that “current events” refers to news, as evidenced by this excerpt, “I think that internet is best to learn and that is because television repeat all the same every day.” Because of the limits in development and structure, the score is 2.

The response addresses the task appropriately but falls short of being fully developed. Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, or pacing are noticeable, especially where the first language influence is clear. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “So if you want to have fun if you go out there’s lots of bars. If you want to just go to the beach and stay there and enjoy the beach and have a nice bath…well the weather is also hot…it’s a nice beach so…” Because of the limits in development and structure, the score is 3.

26 November 2017 Costa Rica 3 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task appropriately but may fall short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas. The primary issue is with minor, but frequent pronunciation errors, such as with the word “hotels.” Development is somewhat limited to repetition of information about the “view of the volcano.”  Sentence structure is varied, and the speaker uses precise language, despite the pronunciation problems. The speaker is encouraged to listen to English speakers (in films, recordings, etc., to practice pronunciations). 3

The response is very limited in content and coherence. Only a few key words are discernible, including, “is beautiful…” which is repeated multiple times. Consistent pronunciation, stress and intonation difficulties cause considerable listener effort; delivery is choppy, fragmented, and telegraphic; frequent pauses and hesitations. The score is 1

19 November 2017 Philippines 2 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. There are two main points, that there is a natural lake and friendly people, delivered in two sentences, including the following excerpt, which also demonstrates uneven delivery and repetition of the primary idea, “And of course the people are…are very friendly,  are very accommodating…so they really enjoy to visit there.” Because the response is very brief and under-developed, the score is 2.

The response addresses the task appropriately. Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, or pacing are noticeable and require listener effort at times, especially because of choppy, unrelated sentences, as in this excerpt, “It is the seventh wonder of the world. It is very hygienic and clean place.”  The response demonstrates fairly automatic and effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and fairly coherent expression of relevant ideas. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of vocabulary or grammatical structures, as in this excerpt, “It is one of the famous tourist location in India.” The score is 3

It contains intelligible speech, although problems with delivery and/ or overall coherence occur; meaning is obscured in places. There are long pauses and filler sounds between ideas, sometimes interrupting sentences. Speech is basically intelligible, though listener effort is needed because of unclear articulation, awkward intonation, or choppy rhythm/pace, as in this sentence, “It was a fabric…you know…because …its an industrial city.” It is never really revealed why the location is popular or interesting with tourists, as the response ends with, “It’s very interesting the way the people like that place, you know.” The score is 2.

26 November 2017 Costa Rica 2 out of 4 Question2 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas. The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary, which prevent full expression of ideas, as in this excerpt, “In the case of the television you can listen on the current events and like understand what the television company is telling you.” The speaker is encouraged to focus on vocabulary, as the primarily limitation is the vocabulary to explain his ideas. The score is 2.

20 November 2017 Mexico 2 out of 4 Question2 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited and not directly related to the topic, as the speaker does not clearly make a connection indicating that “current events” refers to news. The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary. These limitations often prevent full expression of ideas, as in this excerpt, “Inline, on internet. Its like on the topical lifestyle you can learn about sports you can try, easy workouts…recipes instead of pay for nutritionists. “Speech is generally clear, with some fluidity of expression, though minor difficulties with pronunciation, intonation, and pacing are noticeable.

The response fulfills the demands of the task, with at most minor lapses in completeness. It is highly intelligible and exhibits sustained, coherent discourse. The response demonstrates effective use of grammar and vocabulary. It exhibits a fairly high degree of automaticity with good control of basic and complex structures, as in this excerpt, “There are a lot of people who will post, have a comment…to give accurate information.” There are infrequent, minor mechanical errors, as in this excerpt, “If you are going to use internet you will have a wider knowledge or information about something you are curious of.” But they do not detract from meaning.

16 November 2017 Bangladesh 2 out of 4 Question1 None

Unfortunately, the volume on this response is very low, so not all words are audible. Based on what can be heard, the score is likely in the 2 range based on the sentence structure and pacing. There are obvious errors in grammar, as in this sentence, “I go with my foreign friend who is come from Italy…when I take him…he is…” Unfortunately, most sentences trail off into being inaudible, so an accurate score cannot be confirmed.

16 November 2017 Bangladesh 2 out of 4 Question1 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. It contains intelligible speech, although problems with delivery and/ or overall coherence occur; meaning is obscured in places. The primary point is the following excerpt, “The natural beauty…and it is the longest sea beach in the world, okay…so…that’s it.” The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary. These limitations often prevent full expression of idea, as in this sentence, “And there is a beach. Often foreigners came here and … in a wave water.” Because of limitations in development and sentence structure, the score is 2. 

Picture of Ilse Salazar Ilse Salazar

18 November 2017 Mexico 1 out of 4 Question2 None

The response is very limited in content and is only minimally connected to the task. The primary evidence the speaker provides is the following excerpt, “When I was young…I liked to watch Disney High School Musical and sing along,” which is not related to “current events” or news in any way. Speech is basically intelligible, though listener effort is needed because of unclear articulation, awkward intonation, and choppy rhythm/pace, as in this excerpt, “I think …yeah…you can learn using internet…like YouTube..you know.” Because of the lack of connection to the task and limits in delivery, the score is 1.
