Score conversions show how raw scores are converted into test scores, cross-test scores, and subscores.
Important to Note
- The section score for the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section is calculated by adding the Reading Test score to the Writing and Language Test score and multiplying that figure by 10.
- The section score for the Math section is calculated by multiplying the Math Test score by 20.
- There is no advantage or disadvantage in taking any particular test form.
- On every test, certain scores are not available, and are referred to as "score gaps." Score gaps emerge as a result of a statistical process called equating in which the number of questions answered correctly and the difficulty of the questions are both considered when scoring across the different tests taken nationwide. Although College Board works to develop tests with the same level of difficulty, the questions in them differ and therefore some can be slightly easier or harder than others. This can influence the placement of the score gaps throughout the scaled score range. With equating, test scores are equivalent and valid, regardless of when students tested or the level of difficulty of the test they took.
- Score conversions will not be available for the tests administered in April, or for schools participating in the test administration study.
