Rigorous question testing and validation and the highest degree of statistical scoring procedures for accurate and comparable results make the SSAT trusted by private schools worldwide.
On the Middle and Upper Level SSAT, a point is awarded for each correct answer, a quarter of a point is subtracted for each incorrect answer, and no points are awarded or deducted for omitted questions.
On the Elementary Level SSAT, a point is awarded for each correct answer and there is no penalty for incorrect answers.
The standard SSAT score release schedule for each testing mode is listed below. Please note: Before scores are released to the family, designated schools, or educational consultants, a parent or guardian must complete the Testing Experience Statement first. This policy applies to all students and testing modes.
