Understanding Your Scores
Your composite score combines area scores in English, Reading, Math and Science. It does not include your essay score.
Your subscores are based on particular question types within each test section. These scores assess skills specific to the English, Math and Science tests alone. Two will be related to particular questions in the English Test: Usage/Mechanics and Rhetorical Skills. Three will relate to specific types of questions on the Math Test: PreAlgebra/Elem. Algebra, Algebra/Coord. Geometry, and Plane Geometry/Trigonometry. The last two refer to certain questions of the Reading Test: Social Studies/Sciences, and Arts/Literature. These scores are on a scale from 1 to 18.
