Adding a Scale Score

About: A scale score maps the candidate’s raw score to a common scale to allow for comparison across different test forms, and in the long term allows test results to be reported consistently from one year to the next and one test form to another. This video explains how to add scale scores to test forms in ‘Test Creation’.

Objective: By the end of this lesson you will know how to add a scale score file to test forms in ‘Test Creation’.

Next steps: Go to the ‘Test Forms’ screen in Surpass and add and edit a scale score to see how this affects the scoring of candidate tests. Look out for the video on how to add Scale Scores in the ‘Rescoring’ screen of Reporting.
