Automatic scoring by the computer for listening and reading section decides CELPIP Level for the students, but for writing and speaking sections, expert trainers are required to award scores after taking into account different categories and factors into account.

In the case of Writing and Speaking exams, there are many factors that are taken into consideration by the examiner. We’ll try to explain in the following tables :

There are four categories for Speaking test with a number of factors  as :

Category 1 > Content / Coherence: This category has four factors which are considered for scoring. These are as follows :

Factor 1:  Number of ideas.

Factor 2:  Quality of ideas.

Factor 3: Organization of ideas.

Factor 4: Examples and supporting details.

Category 2 >  Vocabulary:

Factor 1:  Word choice.

Factor 2: Suitable use of words and phrases.

Factor 3: Range of words and phrases.

Factor 4: Precision and accuracy.

Category 3 > Listenability: 

Factor 1: Rhythm, pronunciation, and intonation.

Factor 2: Pauses, interjections, and self-correction.

Factor 3: Grammar and sentence structure.

Factor 4: Variety of sentence structure.

In the case of Writing Section first and the second category of factors are same, but Category 4 has one factor different. Fourth-factor “word count” is there instead of “Length”.

Category 3, is entirely different as below:

Category 3 > Readability: 

Factor 1: Format and paragraphing
