How is the SSAT scored?2017-10-07T11:15:12-04:00

#### How is the SSAT scored?

You will receive three types of scores on your score report: a raw score, a scaled score, and a percentile ranking.

Raw scores are determined by counting the number of incorrect answers and correct answers. Correct answers are worth one point each, and one quarter point is deducted for each incorrect answer. No points are deducted for failing to answer a question, and all questions have the same point value.

Scaled scores are derived from the raw scores. Different scales are used for the different levels of the test: students taking the SSAT Elementary Level test will receive a score on a scale of 900 to 1800 (300 to 600 per section), students taking the SSAT Middle Level test will receive a score on a scale of 1320 to 2130 (440 to 710 per section), and students taking the upper level test will receive a score on a scale of 1500 and 2400 (500 to 800 per section).

The percentile ranking represents how well you did compared to other students of the same grade and gender who have taken the SSAT in the past three years. Your rank will be between 1% and 99%, and indicates the percentage of students with a lower or equal score to your own. For example: if you receive a percentile score of 75%, that would mean that you did as well as or better than 75% of students of your grade and gender who took the test in the past three years.
