# Scoring the SAT

Scoring the SAT

To score the CR section:

1) Add up all of the correct answers (multiple choice), which each count as 1 point.

2) Add up all of the incorrect answers and divide this number by 4. Hence, each incorrect answer counts as ¼ point. *Important - questions that have been omitted are NOT counted as incorrect. They do not count toward or against the total section score.

3) Subtract the number of incorrect answers (which have already been divided by 4) from the number of correct answers.

4) This will generate an answer that is unrounded, so the program should then round up or down. As an example, if a student scores a 20.5 or 20.75, it should round up to 21. If a student scores a 20.25, it should be rounded down to a 20.

5) Once this raw score has been calculated, you can refer to the attached document which converts the raw score into a scaled score for the critical reading section. As an example, a raw score of 21 on the CR section would scale to a score of 440 for this section.

To score the Math section:

1) Add up all of the correct answers (multiple choice and student response), which each count as 1 point.

2) Add up all of the multiple choice incorrect answers and divide this number by 4. Hence, each incorrect answer counts as ¼ point. *Important - incorrect answers from the only math section that is not multiple choice (student response section) are NOT included in the total number of questions they got wrong. *Important - questions that have been omitted are NOT counted as incorrect. They do not count toward or against the total section score.

3) Subtract the number of incorrect answers (which have already been divided by 4) from the number of correct answers.

4) This will generate an answer that is unrounded, so the program should then round up or down. As an example, if a student scores a 20.5 or 20.75, it should round up to 21. If a student scores a 20.25, it should be rounded down to a 20.

5) Once this raw score has been calculated, you can refer to the attached document which converts the raw score into a scaled score for the math section. As an example, a raw score of 21 on the math section would scale to a score of 470 for this section.

To score the Writing section:

1) Add up all of the correct answers (multiple choice), which each count as 1 point.

2) Add up all of the incorrect answers and divide this number by 4. Hence, each incorrect answer counts as ¼ point. *Important - questions that have been omitted are NOT counted as incorrect. They do not count toward or against the total section score.

3) Subtract the number of incorrect answers (which have already been divided by 4) from the number of correct answers.

4) This will generate an answer that is unrounded, so the program should then round up or down. As an example, if a student scores a 20.5 or 20.75, it should round up to 21. If a student scores a 20.25, it should be rounded down to a 20.

5) This is where it gets a bit complicated. Once this raw score has been calculated, the program does not need to convert the raw score into a scaled score. Instead, you can refer to the attached document which shows how the writing multiple choice raw score is paired with the essay score to generate a section score. Essentially, the writing section score is generated from the two multiple choice sections, but is also scored based on the students essay score. So, essentially, the essay counts as 1/3 of this section score. Once the multiple choice raw score is generated, refer to the writing conversion table which shows the essay raw scores on the top row. As an example, a raw score of 21 on the writing section and a 8 on the essay would convert to a score of 480 for this section.

Lastly, all three of these section scores should be added together to generate the students overall score with a breakdown of each section. It should look like this: 1390 CR440/M470/WR480(8).
