Advantage Testing SSAT Q&A

What do scaled scores mean on the SSAT?

Scaled scores are determined by your raw score (i.e., the number of questions you got correct and incorrect). They allow you to compare your scores across the different sections on the tests. Raw scores are scaled so that a certain scaled score one year remains at approximately the same percentile as that same scaled score from other years.

When you take the SSAT, you will receive three different scaled sections scores: quantitative, verbal, and reading. Each level of the SSAT is scaled differently:

  • Upper Level: each section is scored on a scale of 500 to 800, with a total scaled score ranging from 1500 to 2400.
  • Middle Level: each section is scored on a scale of 440 to 710, with a total scaled score ranging from 1320 to 2130.
  • Elementary Level: each section is scored on a scale of 300 to 600, with a total scaled score ranging from 900 to 1800.
