Understanding Your Scores

Did I pass?

Qualifying scores are set by the state or school district. Your score report will indicate your score and whether you passed based on the qualifying score of the school district you selected as your score recipient. If your score report doesn’t provide a passing score, it’s because your state or school district hasn’t yet established one.

For a list of passing scores, see State Requirements.


What information is in my score report?

Your score report contains:

  • your name
  • your score(s)
  • pass/no pass score information based on your selected score recipient
  • background information
  • educational information
  • detailed content category performance (for current scores)

What are content category scores?

Test questions are grouped into content categories, each of which has its own score. This helps you identify areas where further study could improve your score. Your score report shows your "raw points" (number of questions answered correctly) in each content category. It also shows the number of raw points available in each category and the range of points earned by the middle 50% of test takers.
