5 on the TOEFL Writing Essays?

In this post, we use our grammar profiler to predict the CEFR level of this TOEFL Integrated Writing Sample Essay.

We found that the most salient language is the ability to modify adjectives and use abstract nouns.  So let’s look at this advanced text.  The profiler says the text is probably C1, which we can surmise by being given a C2 and B2 prediction.   The highest level of grammar according to the English Grammar Profile is at C1:

He says that the theory stated in the passage was very different 

and somewhat inaccurate when compared to what happened for real.

Yet, much of the English Grammar Profile does not quite match up with the English Vocabulary Profile.  It makes sense that our grammar profiler uses the logic of both sets of data and also locates:

That is, some didn’t work hard but got recognition for the success nonetheless.

My favourite sentence in the sample is the following.  The profiler spots a word in the new academic list that is unlisted across the English Vocabulary Profile:

The passage says that groups are more responsive than individuals because of the number of people involved and their aggregated resources.
