Elite TOEFL Prep The following video contains a sample of the integrated writing task for the TOEFL iBT. This is the first task you must complete in the writing portion of the TOEFL iBT. The integrated writing task measures your ability to understand key ideas from an academic reading passage and a short lecture, and to write a response to a question about them. You must determine what information in the lecture relates in some ways to information in the reading. Then you must organize and compose an essay. In your response, you must demonstrate your ability to: → organize ideas effectively in answering the question; → draw requested connection between the lecture and the reading; → develop ideas with appropriate examples and explanation; → display unity and coherence, transitions; → use English words and sentences efectively. ========================================­======== The topic of this video is the "Turing Test". Here is the READING PASSAGE: → Do computers think? It isn’t a new question. In fact, Alan Turing, a British mathematician, proposed an experiment to answer the question in 1950, and the test, known as the Turing Test, is still used today. In the experiment, a group of people are asked to interact with something in another room through a computer terminal. They don’t know whether it is another person or a computer that they are interacting with. They can ask any questions that they want. They can type their questions onto a computer screen, or they can ask their questions by speaking into a microphone. In response, they see the answers on a computer screen or they hear them played back by a voice synthesizer. At the end of the test, the people have to decide whether they have been talking to a person or to a computer. If they judge the computer to be a person, or if they can’t determine the difference, then the machine has passed the Turing Test. Since 1950, a number of contests have been organized in which machines are challenged to the Turing Test. In 1990, Hugh Loebner sponsored a prize to be awarded by the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies—a gold medal and a cash award of $100,000 to the designer of the computer that could pass the Turing Test; however, so far, no computer has passed the test. ← NOTE: In the official TOEFL iBT you would be able to have access to the reading passage, therefore you my use this reading while you are writing your essay. ========================================­======== You have 20 minutes to plan and write your response. Here you have timer to use while you are writing your essay: 20 minute response time: minutes Here you the question: → Summarize the main points in the reading passage, and then explain how the lecture cast doubt on the ideas provided in the reading. ← ========================================­======== Would you like to have your performance evaluated? if so, send us an email and we'll gladly walk you through our evaluation service.
