## Understanding SAT Test Score

• Raw Score (Multiple Choice Only): You begin with 0 points. For every question you answer correctly, you earn 1 point. For every question you answer incorrectly, you lose one-fourth of 1 point. For every question you omit, you earn 0 points.
• Raw Score (Fill-in-the-Blank): You begin with 0 points. For every question you answer correctly, you earn 1 point. Otherwise, an incorrect or omitted answer is worth 0 points.
• Essay Scoring: Essays are scored on a scale of 1-6, 6 being the highest. Two graders score the essay, and the combined score is used to determine the overall 2-12 score on the essay
• Scaled SAT Score: For each major section of the SAT, your raw score is converted into a scaled (200-800) score using a skewed normal curve. A higher raw score corresponds to a higher scaled score.

## SAT Question Types

• Multiple Choice: A question and five responses are presented. You must choose the correct response or omit the question. Guessing penalty applied.
• Fill-in-the-Blank: A question is presented in the mathematics section. You must bubble in the correct numerical response.
