CAT Exam Score Calculation:
Step 1: Raw Score is Calculated
Your raw scores are calculated for each section based on the number of questions you answered correctly, incorrectly, or that you omitted.
Step 2: Raw Score is “Equated”
Equating is a statistical process used to adjust scores on two or more alternate forms of an assessment so that the scores may be used interchangeably. Industry standard processes were used for equating, such as those outlined within the ETS Standards for Quality and Fairness.
Step 3: Equated Raw Score is “Scaled”
In order to ensure appropriate interpretation of an equated raw score, the scores must be placed on a common scale or metric. A linear transformation is used for this scaling process, which is an industry standard practice (Kolen & Brennan, 2004).
The IIM scaling model is as follows:
Section Scores = 0 to 225
Total Exam Score = 0 to 450
Three scaled scores are presented for each candidate: an overall scaled score and two separate scaled scores for each section. Percentile rankings are provided for each individual section as well as for the overall exam score.
