TOEIC Bridge® Test
Test results are not shown as a pass or fail. Instead, they are shown as a score from 10 to 90 for the Listening Section and 10 to 90 for the Reading Section, for a total score of 20 to 180 (in two-point increments). This score is not your raw score, or the number of correct answers. It is a scaled score, calculated using a statistical processing method called “equating.”
The TOEIC Bridge Test also shows three-level sub-scores for five areas in addition to the two section scores and the total score.
Scores for the TOEIC Bridge Test are based on the number of correct answers. There is no penalty for wrong answers, so we recommend you answer every question, even if you are not sure of the answer. In the Reading Section in particular, you need to watch the time so you can complete all the questions on your answer sheet.
In the TOEIC Bridge Test, additional assessments are shown on a scale of 1 to 3 for the following five categories. The higher your score in each category, the higher your assessment compared to other test takers.
|Functions||This subscore shows how well you can understand what a speaker is trying to do with the language. Examples of functions include offering, requesting, telling the time, giving instructions, and asking for instructions.|
|This subscore shows how well you use strategies to get information from a spoken text. Examples of these strategies include listening for stressed syllables, guessing meaning from context, listening for required information, and hearing differences between similar sounds.|
|This subscore shows how well you use strategies to get information from a written text. Examples include skimming, scanning, reading for required information, identifying the purpose and/or main idea of a text, and making inferences.|
|Vocabulary||This subscore shows how well you understand short phrases or words in context.|
|Grammar||This subscore shows how well you understand the form, meaning, and use of English grammar. TOEIC Bridge subscores are meaningfully less reliable than Listening and Reading scores, and have not been established to reflect distinct skills. For these reasons, it is not recommended that subscores be used in decision-making.|
