The SET-10 machine-generated scores generally correspond as they should with human ratings.  At the Overall score level, SET-10 machine-generated scores are virtually indistinguishable from a scoring that is done by careful human transcriptions and repeated independent human judgments.  The correlation between the two is 0.97.
Over the years, Ordinate and third parties have collected data on parallel administrations of the SET-10 and other well-established language examinations, enabling a measure of concurrent validity of the SET-10.
Correlations with other instruments for assessing oral skills, which focus mainly or entirely on speaking, range from.75 to.94.
