    I am perhaps being a little dense here, but I don't know what you are looking for. What do you mean by a 'standard scale for correction'?

    Well, I mean that there should be something based on which the writing skill is corrected and graded. I am looking for that standard thing based on which the writing is corrected and graded.
    Does TOEFL and IELTS have any correction scales? What are the important criteria for writing correction?

    There are criteria for the marking (not correction) of English Language examinations, but these would not be relevant for a dissertation. You need to find out from the institution which will be assessing your dissertation what their requirements are about language standards.

    Dear Sjj. There should be a standard writing for grading writing in international English exams like TOEFL or IELTS.

    As I wrote, the examing boards have their criteria, for example: IELTS Writing Marking Criteria Schemes

    Different exams will have their own standards. There will be many similarities, but they will reflect their syllabuses and needs.
