Unformatted text preview: all stray marks. If you change an answer, be sure that all previous marks are erased completely. Incomplete erasures may be read as intended answers. Do not be concerned that the answer sheet provides spaces for more answers than there are questions in the test. Example: What city is the capital of France? (A) (B) (C) (D) (E) Rome Paris London Cairo Oslo Sample Answer A A A A A B B B B B C C C C C D D D D D E E E E E CORRECT ANSWER PROPERLY MARKED IMPROPER MARKS DO NOT OPEN YOUR TEST BOOK UNTIL YOU ARE TOLD TO DO SO. ® 64 Educational Testing Service Princeton, New Jersey 08541 Scoring Your Subject Test Biology Test scores are reported on a 200 to 990 score scale in ten-point increments. The actual range of scores is smaller, and it varies from edition to edition because different editions are not of precisely the same difficulty. However, this variation in score range is usually small and should be taken into account mainly when comparing two very high scores. In general, differences between scores at the 99th percentile should be ignored. The score conversion table on page 67 shows the score range for this edition of the test only. Subscores are reported as two-digit scaled scores. The maximum possible range of Subject Test subscores is 20 to 99. Like total scores, the actual range of subscores for any test or test edition may be smaller than 20 to 99. The worksheet on page 66 lists the correct answers to the questions. Columns are provided for you to mark whether you chose the correct (C) answer or an incorrect (I) answer to each question. Draw a line across any question you omitted, because it is not counted in the scoring. At the bottom of the page, enter the total number correct and the total number incorrect. Divide the total incorrect by 4 and subtract the resulting number from the total correct. Then round the result to the nearest whole number. This will give you your raw total score. Use the total score conversion table to find the scaled total score that corresponds to your raw total score. Example: Suppose you chose the correct answers to 105 questions and incorrect answers to 41. Dividing 41 by 4 yields 10.3. Subtracting 10.3 from 105 equals 94.7, which is rounded to 95. The raw score of 95 corresponds to a scaled score of 670. The subscore columns in the worksheet can be similarly used to tally your correct and incorrect responses to the questions that contribute to each subscore. We suggest that you circle the “•” if you chose the correct answer, and put a minus sign beside the “•” for an incorrect answer. Space is provided at the bottom right of the worksheet to calculate and enter your three raw subscores. The subscore conversion table will show you the scaled subscores that correspond to your raw subscores.
