How the EXADEP™ Test is Scored

The following scaled scores are reported:

  • A Verbal Aptitude score on a 20–80 score scale, in 1-point increments
  • A Mathematics/Analytical Reasoning score on a 20–80 score scale, in 1-point increments
  • A Written Expression score on a 20–80 score scale, in 1-point increments
  • An English score on a 20–80 score scale, in 1-point increments
  • A Total score on a 200–800 score scale, in 1-point increments

To obtain the Total score, each section score is multiplied by the section weight. The weight for each section is proportionate to the number of items in each section.
