PTE Score Report and Skills Profile

In PTE Academic, all responses are subject to machine scoring through our distinctive automated scoring system. The scoring for certain question types relies solely on accuracy, while for others, it takes into account correctness, formal elements, and the response’s overall quality.

To help your students prepare for the PTE Academic test, it’s essential for teachers to have a good grasp of the test details, including question types, timing, scoring, and any updates. This way, you can guide your students effectively, ensuring they have a smooth test experience and can make sense of their PTE results.

Understanding your Score Report and Skills Profile

In the Score Report, the performance section comprises four key components: your Overall Score, your Communicative Skills scores, and an individualized Skills Profile featuring personalized Recommendations.

Skills Profile

This section highlights your performance in eight distinct language skill areas, which include:

  1. Open response speaking and writing
  2. Reproducing spoken and written language
  3. Extended writing
  4. Short writing
  5. Extended speaking 
  6. Short speaking
  7. Multiple-skills comprehension
  8. Single-skill comprehension

In each skill category, a bar graph visually represents your performance level in that specific skill. The more the bar is filled, the higher your level of accuracy in that skill.
