Your Questions Answered back to top

 

1) Does my system include reviews; if not, how can I add them to my account?

 

NoteFull systems come in four types of packages:

 

1) self-study

2) with review

3) with tutoring

4) with tutoring and review

 

Sometimes students aren't sure which type of system they have. When you register be sure to note whether your system title says "+ Review"--this is how you should be able to determine quickly if you have reviews in your account. If you are unsure at any point, please don't hesitate to send us an email. 

 

If you do not have Reviews, but would like to receive them, you can do so at any time, by using the "For Reviews" or the "Extra Reviews" menu options in your system. Here is a link for your convenience:

 

Two Additional Reviews (36)

 

We always try our best to provide a bit of feedback for students who are not registered for reviews, but remember, if you'd like full, guaranteed reviews, your best bet is to register for them separately or as a part of your system. Also, if you are a self-study student, remember that we will provide you with unlimited email support. This means that any time you have a question or a concern, we'll always be there to help. Never hesitate to write in with your concerns.

 


 

2) How do I submit my work for review?

 

Once you register for a system that includes reviews, or once you register for additional reviews, you should have access to review submission forms. Take a look at the following step by step guide to submit your work for your full review:

 

1) Complete your study of steps 1, 2, and 3.

 

2) Write two essays or record six recordings to any step you wish under TOEFL test conditions. If you're submitting a flash review for reading or listening, you should complete a full reading or listening test and log your answers.

 

 

3) Open the "Reviews section of your system and fill out the review form entirely and accurately.

 

4) For writing, copy and paste both of your essays for questions 1 and 2 in the form. For speaking copy and paste your voxopop link (if you're having trouble with this, please refer to the tutorial link: HERE). 

 

5) If you submit your TOEFL tests before 1:00 p.m. EST on Monday through Friday, you'll receive your review within 48 hours. 

 

 


 

3) What should I do if I cannot use the review submission forms?

 

Some students have trouble with our submission forms. If you are having this problem, you can submit your tests manually in a standard email. Simply send your essay or recording files (or copy and paste your reading or listening answers into the email body) to us at StudentHelp@NoteFull.com. Don't forget to include the following details:

 

1) Your full name

2) Your NoteFull log-in details (including password!)

3) The NoteFull system(s) you're registered for

4) The test number you're submitting. 

 

We'll respond in the same way we would for students who can use the forms. Best of luck!

 


 

4) How do I use voxopop and are there any recording alternatives?

 

To record your speaking answers, first, click on the "voxopop" link you see in the system. Then, you will see the voxopop page. You should see something like the image we've included below. First, if you do not yet have a voxopop account, click on the green star to sign up and join for this great free service. Then, log in if you're not already logged in after signing up. Once you're logged in, click on start a talkgroup. Then, fill out the appropriate information.

 

 

Afterwards, you will be taken to a new page, simply click on record a new discussion as you see below and record your answer for question 1.

 

 

You will have to name this discussion. Please title it the practice test that you are recording your answers for, which you see an example of below.

 

 

Once you finish recording your first answer, record your remaining 5 answers in the same discussion. Please avoid recording your answers in separate discussions; it makes the reviews take a longer amount of time. However, don't worry too much if you don't get it right the first time. We're here to help and as long as you send them in you'll be fine. In the end, you should record all of your answers so it looks like the following.

 

 

Your final step is to send us the direct link to your recordings via email. That's the URL that you see below that's on the page where all of your recordings are. If everyone does this, then we can provide our feedback much, much faster. 

 

 

 

Sometimes, our students experience problems with Voxopop. It's not always the most reliable recording service, but at this time, it's the best service out there that we've found. To make sure that you're able to use Voxopop smoothly, please be sure that you have the latest version of Java installed on your computer. If you've already dont this and you are still having difficulties, you can refer to the Voxopop "Help" page for troubleshooting information: http://www.voxopop.com/help


As an alternative, you may also submit reviews with mp3 recordings. Just submit them as attachments in your email to StudentHelp@NoteFull.com. Be sure to include the test and question number that corresponds to your recording. Don't forget to include the following details:

 

1) Your full name

2) Your NoteFull log-in details (including password!)

3) The NoteFull system(s) you're registered for

4) The test number you're submitting. 


Finally, as a last resort, you can also use Vocaroo.com. After each recording, send us an email to the address above with the link to your recording. Again, be sure to specify the test and question number in your email.

 

 

 

5) Who will review my work?

 

All NoteFull TOEFL instructors have been rigorously trained through NoteFull's training methods and standards. Currently, Mathew and Nayyer are our TOEFL Review Instructors, but Joseph also provides reviews throughout our busy season. 

 


 

6) How long will my review take?

 

We are currently able to provide 48-hour turnover for TOEFL reviews. This means that if you send in your test submission before 1:00 p.m. EST, we'll send you a review within 48 hours. Please note that our instructors are currently working on reviews Monday through Friday.

 

Also, keep in mind that we do occasionally experience delays. We're a small team of dedicated instructors and sometimes, things come up making it difficult for us to provide you with a review immediately. We understand that you may be stressed and under tight deadlines, so if you do not receive your review as quickly as you should, please send us an email at StudentHelp@NoteFull.com letting us know about your situation and we'll try our best to accommodate your needs right away.

 

 


 

7) How frequently can I submit tests for review?

 

To make the most improvements possible, we request that you submit only one test at time. This is important because your reviews should be used to help you improve your skills and strategies. If you submit more than one test at a time, we will still only have one set of comments and suggestions to make for your improvement. 

 

After you receive your review, you should listen carefully to the recommendations your instructor makes and use them to begin improving. After you complete the tasks your NoteFull instructor recommended, you can then move forward with a new test submission. Ideally, you should be submitting no more than 2 tests per week. Again, remember, this is for your benefit and only to ensure that you are on the right track to success!

 


 

8) Will you review my tests from other resources (e.g., ETS, Cambridge, Kaplan, etc.)?

 

We do require that all tests submitted come from a NoteFull system. Unfortunately, if you submit a test to us from outside sources (e.g., Longman, Cambridge, etc.), we will not be able to provide you with feedback. This is because we do not always have access to these resources and most importantly, because we didn't design them and therefore, cannot verify their accuracy. 

 

We encourage you to register for a NoteFull system if you're looking for feedback on your TOEFL tests. We'd be glad to point you in the right direction if you're not sure where to start.

 


 

9) Do you review non-TOEFL writing (e.g., college admission essays, letters of intent, etc.)?

 

At this time, we do not officially review any form of writing outside of the TOEFL. However, we do occasionally try to help students who write in for a bit of guidance. 

 

If you are looking for feedback on an essay or letter you've written, please send us an email. We cannot always guarantee help here, but we will always try!
