Scores on the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test are determined by the number of correct answers. The number of correct responses on each section is converted to a scaled score. Three TOEIC® Listening and Reading scaled scores are given for each examinee:

  • οne for the Listening Section
  • οne for the Reading Section
  • οne Total Score that consists of the sum of the Listening Section and Reading Section sub-scores.

Each sub-score can range from 5 to 495 points. The Total Score ranges from 10 to 990. There is no negative scoring. The Total Score consists of the sum of the Listening Section and Reading Section sub-scores.

The statistical procedures used to convert scores to a common scale ensure that similar TOEIC® Listening and Reading scores indicate similar levels of English proficiency.
