How is the SSAT scored?

PrintPrintEmailEmail

Middle Level test scores are reported for each subject on a scale of 440 to 710. Upper Level scores are reported for each subject on a scale of 500 to 800. Before calculating your scaled score, the SSATB first calculates a raw score. The raw score is computed by adding up all of your correct answers and then subtracting 1/4 point for each wrong answer (blank answers have no effect on your score). The SSATB converts raw scores to scaled scores in order to adjust for small variations in difficulty among different test dates. The table below gives the 50th percentile score (the score at which an equal number of students scored higher and lower) for each subject and for each grade level.
