TOEFL MyBest Scores拼分

托福MyBest™ Scores 怎麼計算,對學生真的有幫助嗎?哪些大學接受MyBest Scores?(2021年更新)

托福在2019年8月除了改革為新制托福考試以外,還增加了MyBest Scores。今天我們除了解釋MyBest Scores如何計算,還幫大家整理最新接受MyBest Scores大學清單方便學生查詢,同時並分析MyBest Scores對申請學校到底幫助有多大。


什麼是 TOEFL MyBest™ Scores?

這次新增的iBT MyBest™ Scores確實可以幫助學生更容易達到理想成績,簡單的來說,就是將你兩年內所有的托福考試拿出來比較,將聽說讀寫4科分別挑出最好的成績。假設你考過以下五次托福,然後現在是 2020/4/15,那你在 2018/4/15之前考的托福考試就超過兩年的限制,因此2018年2月的那次就不再顯示,只會顯示最後四次成績:

在舊的制度,最高的一次分數就是學生的托福分數,但學生可以呈報多次的考試分數。用我們的例子,學生的托福分數就是 2020 年一月的 97 分:

學生在發送成績給大學的時候可以發送多次的分數,因為在 2019 年十月的閱讀(29)跟 2020 三月的口說(25)跟寫作(25)都比 2020 年一月那次的分數高,學生可能會發送這三次的分數給大學,讓大學看到學生各科能夠達到的最高實力。

在新的制度,MyBest Scores會直接幫學生把最高成績列出來並取各科最高分為學生的分數。用我們的例子,學生的托福分數會來自最後三次的考試,托福分數就是 106 分:

因為分數算法的不同,現在官方會自動列出兩年內所有最高的單科成績,學生托福分數從舊制的 97 分變成新制的 106 分!


TOEFL MyBest™ Scores對學生真的有幫助嗎?

若我們上面所說,這種新的算法能讓上面那位學生的托福分數從97變成106 ,表面上看來當然這種新的算法可以幫助學生拿到更高的分數,對學生當然是有利的。

但其實MyBest Scores對學生的幫助並沒有像你想的那麼大,甚至拿到更高的分數很有可能對你是沒有幫助的。為什麼呢?

會因MyBest Scores政策而真正受益的其實只兩種人:

1. 托福分數很低、需要靠MyBest Scores跨過申請門檻的學生:假設學校對國際生的申請門檻要求是托福考到80分,學生可能考了兩次都分別是未達標的 75 跟 76,但透過 MyBest Scores 分數拼到了 80,獲得申請資格,不需要再去考第三次。

2. ETS TOEFL官方:MyBest Scores會取單科最高分數當你的分數,如果你多考幾次,你的分數只會更高不會更低,所以這個政策會鼓勵學生多考幾次,會幫托福出題官方得到非常多額外的收入。

為什麼我們說更高的MyBest Scores其實對你沒太大幫助呢?

1. 大家的TOEFL平均分數都提高了

我記得我在初中跟高中的時候,如果大家在某一次考試都考不好,老師可能會給全班加5分,當這樣的事情發生的時候,一些同學會非常開心,但我每次都覺得很沒意義,因為雖然大家的考試分數都高了5分,這對全班的排名完全沒影響,我的全班第10名的考試成績還是全班第10名。

當你的托福分數因為MyBest Scores從102進步到105時,你的競爭對手同時也因為取各科最高分而從102進步到105左右,你們之間的差距還是相同的。學校能錄取的學生人數有限,不會因為托福分數更高而錄取更多學生。

2. 更高的托福分數不能證明有高階的英文母語程度

TOEFL 是 “the Test of English as a Foreign Language” 的縮寫,是一個英文為外語的考試。當一個外國人考了 HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test) 漢語考試通過高級檢定時,我們會知道他有 “跟正常中文為母語的一般人” 一樣流利的中文溝通能力,但這不表示他去考學測的中文可以拿到高分,或比台灣人或中國人更會說中文。相同的,當學生在托福拿到高分時,這只是表示你有一般美國人的英文程度而已,不表示你到那個英文環境讀書時你的英文真的有多好。

如果學生要證明自己的英文程度很好,可以贏過其他的申請生,學生要證明英文實力的地方不是托福,而是 SAT/ACT(申請undergraduate大學)或 GRE/MCAT/LSAT(申請研究所、醫學院、或法學院)的英文語言分數。
