Please note: Our call center representatives cannot provide information regarding score interpretation, such as whether your student did well. Please contact schools to which your student is applying for information about admission requirements.
This section contains your personal information. Be sure that your name and date of birth are correct. Also check to ensure that you registered using your current grade, which determines which test level you took and the comparison/norm group for the SSAT percentiles.
You took the Middle Level SSAT if you’re in grades 5-7 and the Upper Level SSAT if you’re in grades 8-11. There is a different score scale for each level.
SSAT scores are broken down by section (verbal, quantitative/math, reading). A total score (a sum of the three sections) is also reported.
For the Middle Level SSAT, the lowest number on the scale (440) is the lowest possible score a student can earn and the highest number (710) is the highest score for each section.The total scaled score for a Middle Level SSAT is the sum of the scores for the quantitative, verbal, and reading sections. It has a low value of 1320, a high value of 2130, and a midpoint of 1725.
For the Upper Level SSAT, the lowest number on the scale (500) is the lowest possible score a student can earn and the highest number (800) is the highest score for each section. The total scaled score for an Upper Level
SSAT is the sum of the scores for the quantitative, verbal, and reading sections. It has a low value of 1500, a high value of 2400, and a midpoint of 1950.
No single test score provides a perfectly accurate estimate of your proficiency. Therefore, a score range is provided to emphasize the possiblity of score differences if you took the SSAT again within a relatively short period of time. Your new scores would likely fall within the scaled score range indicated.
The SSAT Percentile (1 to 99) compares your performance on the SSAT with that of other students of the same grade/gender who have taken the SSAT in the U.S. and Canada on a Standard test date in the previous three years (the norm group). For students who have taken the SSAT more than once, only their first set of scores is included in this process. You will see the average score for the norm group for each section of the SSAT, as well as your percentile as compared to the norm group.
This section provides valuable information about the test’s content and your test-taking strategies. Comparing the number of wrong answers to unanswered questions will tell you whether you took many guesses rather than leaving questions unanswered if you weren’t sure of the answer.

Your child’s Elementary Level SSAT score report will contain the following information:
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
