Understanding Your Scores

The EXADEP Test Interpretative Data

The following resources will help you gain a better understanding of what your scores mean and how we advise institutions to use them.

Percentile Rank

Percentile ranks are included in the interpretive materials provided with score reports and can be used to compare test takers' relative performance among the measures. Percentile ranks indicate the percent of test takers in a group who obtained scores below a specified score. The percentile ranks are generally based on previous EXADEP test takers from a recent three-year period. Percentile ranks should be compared only if they are based on the same reference population.
