Understanding Your Test Results

For each test, your performance is evaluated against an established standard. The minimum passing score for each test or subtest is approved by the Indiana State Board of Education (SBOE) and is based, in part, on the professional judgments and recommendations of Indiana educators.

The total test or subtest score is based on the number of raw score points earned on each section (multiple-choice section and, for some tests, constructed-response section); the proportion accounted for by each section, if applicable; and the scaling of that score. Raw scores are converted to a scale of 100 to 300. To pass a test or subtest, you must receive a scaled score of 220.

Scoring constructed responses. Information about the scoring of constructed responses, including performance characteristics and the score scale, is available on the preparation materials page for that test.
