McGraw-Hill Education ACT 2017 (2016)
Part II. ACT DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT
Your final reported score is your COMPOSITE SCORE. Your COMPOSITE SCORE is the average of all of your SCALED SCORES.
Your SCALED SCORES for the four multiple-choice sections are derived from the Scoring Table on the next page. Use your RAW SCORE, or the number of questions that you answered correctly for each section, to determine your SCALED SCORE. If you got a RAW SCORE of 60 on the English test, for example, you correctly answered 60 out of 75 questions.
Step 1 Determine your RAW SCORE for each of the four multiple-choice sections:
The following Raw Score Table shows the total possible points for each section.
Multiple-Choice Scoring Worksheet
Step 2 Determine your SCALED SCORE for each of the four multiple-choice sections using the following Scoring Worksheet. Each SCALED SCORE should be rounded to the nearest number according to normal rules. For example, 31.2 ≈ 31 and 31.5 ≈ 32. If you answered 61 questions correctly on the English section, for example, your approximate SCALED SCORE would be 29.
If you take the optional Writing Test, you should refer to Chapter 7 for guidelines on scoring your Writing Test Essay.
Step 3 Determine your COMPOSITE SCORE by finding the sum of all your SCALED SCORES for each of the four sections: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science, and divide by 4 to find the average. Round your COMPOSITE SCORE according to normal rules. For example, 31.2 ≈ 31 and 31.5 ≈ 32.
