SAT Practice Test Score Report
You got your SAT practice score back and are trying to figure out what it all means. We will break this into 2 parts:
- Reading the score report.
- What is a “good” score?
Below is a screen shot of the score report you received. There are two pages to the report.
The first page contains the student answers while the second page shows the results. Students can verify their work vs. the correct answer on the SAT Diagnostic Answers page.
At the top of the second page, you find the results for the Composite Score, Evidence-based Reading (EB-R) Section, and Math Section.
At the bottom of the Results Page page, you will find individual scores for the Reading, Writing and Language, and both Math sections (calculator allowed and no calculator allowed). Each section shows the totals for correct, incorrect, blank, and the percent correct calculation. For the redesigned SAT, there is no longer a penalty for guessing. While not that critical for a practice test, for future exams it is very important that students not leave any question blank. There are very good strategies to help students with their process of elimination skills that all students should learn prior to taking an actual PSAT or SAT.
