Task 2

Reading Passage:

The university is implementing a new policy regarding on-campus parking to address the growing concerns of limited parking spaces. Starting from the next academic year, several changes will be implemented to improve the parking situation on campus.

Firstly, a new parking management system will be introduced. This system will utilize advanced technology to monitor parking spaces and provide real-time information to students and staff about available parking spots. This will help optimize parking utilization and reduce the time spent searching for parking.

Secondly, a revised parking permit system will be implemented. Under the new policy, students and staff will be required to apply for parking permits in advance. The number of permits will be limited based on availability, and they will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. This change aims to ensure fair distribution of parking spaces and prevent overcrowding.

Additionally, the university will encourage alternative transportation methods to reduce the demand for parking. A comprehensive shuttle service will be established, connecting various parts of the campus and nearby residential areas. Moreover, incentives will be offered to students and staff who choose to carpool or use public transportation, such as discounted parking permits or free shuttle passes.

Task 3

Reading Passage:

The History and Development of the Internet

The internet, a global network connecting millions of computers worldwide, has become an integral part of our daily lives. However, its origins can be traced back to the early 1960s when the United States Department of Defense initiated a project called ARPANET. The primary goal of ARPANET was to create a robust communication system that could withstand a nuclear attack. Over time, ARPANET evolved and laid the foundation for the modern internet.

In the 1970s, researchers developed Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), a set of rules governing data transmission between computers. TCP/IP allowed different networks to communicate with each other, forming the basis for the internet as we know it today. As more computers and networks joined the internet, its popularity grew rapidly, leading to the establishment of the first internet service providers (ISPs) in the 1980s.

The invention of the World Wide Web in the late 1980s revolutionized internet usage. Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, developed a system that allowed users to access information through hyperlinked documents. This innovation made the internet user-friendly and accessible to a broader audience, leading to its widespread adoption.

Today, the internet plays a vital role in various aspects of society, including communication, education, commerce, and entertainment. Its continuous development and advancements in technology have enabled the creation of social media platforms, online shopping websites, and digital streaming services. The internet has transformed the way we live, work, and interact with the world, and its influence shows no signs of slowing down.

Listening Passage:

Professor: Good morning, everyone. Today, we'll be discussing the history and development of the internet. As you may know, the internet originated from the ARPANET project in the 1960s. It was initially conceived as a means of communication that could survive a nuclear attack. The project gradually evolved into a network connecting multiple computers, which formed the foundation of the internet.

In the 1970s, researchers introduced TCP/IP, a protocol enabling data transmission across different networks. This breakthrough allowed computers to communicate effectively and paved the way for the modern internet. As more networks joined, the internet gained popularity, and internet service providers emerged in the 1980s.

The World Wide Web, developed by Tim Berners-Lee, revolutionized internet usage in the late 1980s. Through hyperlinked documents, users could easily access and navigate information. This user-friendly approach led to the widespread adoption of the internet.

Now, let's move on to the question for today: How did the invention of the World Wide Web impact the accessibility and popularity of the internet? Please take a moment to think about it, and then we'll discuss your responses.

The question:

Task 4

Listening Passage:

Professor: Today, we're going to discuss the theories of evolution and natural selection. These concepts were first proposed by Charles Darwin in the 19th century and have since become fundamental to our understanding of biology. Darwin's theory of evolution suggests that all species of organisms have descended from a common ancestor over time.

Darwin observed that individuals within a species exhibit variation in their traits. Some individuals may have traits that make them better adapted to their environment, while others may have traits that are less advantageous. This variation, combined with the process of natural selection, leads to the survival and reproduction of individuals with favorable traits.

Natural selection is the driving force behind evolution. It is the process by which certain traits become more or less common in a population over generations. Individuals with advantageous traits are more likely to survive and pass on those traits to their offspring, while individuals with less favorable traits are less likely to reproduce.

For example, let's consider a population of birds living in an environment with different types of seeds. Some seeds have hard shells, while others have soft shells. Birds with stronger beaks that can crack open the hard-shelled seeds have a greater chance of survival and reproduction. Over time, the population will have more individuals with stronger beaks, as they are more successful in obtaining food and passing on their genes.

Now, let's move on to the question related to this lecture.

The question:

How does natural selection contribute to the process of evolution?

My Answer:

Natural selection contribute to the evolution by two ways. the first one because of the threats to the individual of any species the ones who can maintain or keep up with the trades will be flourishing and it will be still exist on the habitat and then the other one who doesn't survive through the trade it will be Extinction and some will be a follute to something that can adapt. and then the second way is because of the food the availability availability of the food for example the birds who actually eating hard seeds will adapt and trying to harden their beaks and the process of evolution started from that 

ChatGPT Assessment:

General Description: 2/4

Your response provides a basic understanding of how natural selection contributes to evolution. However, it lacks clarity and coherence in explaining the concept. The response could have been more organized and developed with clearer examples and explanations.

Delivery: 3/4

Your delivery is generally clear, and you express your ideas with a moderate level of fluency. However, there are some instances of repetition and hesitations that could be improved for a smoother delivery.

Language Use: 2/4

While your language use is generally understandable, there are some grammatical errors, incorrect word choices, and unclear phrasing. You could have used more precise and accurate vocabulary to convey your ideas effectively. Additionally, the response lacks variety in sentence structures and could benefit from improved cohesion.

Topic Development: 2/4

Your response touches upon the two ways natural selection contributes to evolution: adaptation to threats and adaptation to food availability. However, you do not provide sufficient examples or explanations to support your points. It would have been more effective to provide specific examples and elaborate on the process of evolution in each case.

Total Score: 9/16

Note: The TOEFL iBT speaking section has six tasks, and each task is rated on a scale of 0-4. The scores for each task are then added together for a total score out of 24. In this case, I have provided an assessment for your answer based on the four rubrics you mentioned (General Description, Delivery, Language Use, Topic Development) and provided a total score out of 16, which is not directly comparable to the TOEFL iBT speaking scoring scale.
