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.
Your “raw” score on the Middle and Upper Level SSATs is determined by subtracting a percentage of the number of wrong answers from the number of right answers. You receive one point for every correct answer and lose one-quarter point for each wrong answer on a question with a five-choice response. You do not lose points by skipping a question. Raw scores are a base scoring element and are not reported.
Admission officers use your scores to estimate your ability to do work in their programs, as well as to compare your performance with other applicants for admission or with your present academic record. Each school evaluates your scores according to its own standards and requirements. Please contact individual schools for more information about the weight or importance they place on SSAT scores in the admission process.
Different SSAT forms are built and administered to students each year. Although test developers follow specific procedures to ensure that test difficulty is as similar as possible across test forms, in reality there are variations in test form difficulty. A statistical procedure called score equating is used to adjust scores to compensate for minor form difficulty differences so that scores on different test forms are comparable.
The same raw score from different forms can be converted to different scaled scores depending on test form difficulty, which correspond to different percentiles, depending on the ability level of the pool of students taking the SSAT. For example, if a raw score of 50 from Form X results in a lower scaled score than the raw score 50 from Form Y, then Form X is easier than Form Y at the raw score level of 50. Equating ensures that only ability differences are reflected in the resulting scores, so they can be compared directly and used interchangeably.
Percentiles have shifted by only 1% in four years.
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.
