To score your test, use these instructionsand the conversion tables and answer key at the end of this document.Scores OverviewThe redesigned SAT will provide more information about your learning by reporting morescores than ever before. Each of the redesigned assessments (SAT, PSAT/NMSQT , PSAT 10,and PSAT 8/9) will report test scores and cross-test scores on a common scale. Additionally,subscores will be reported to provide additional diagnostic information to students, educators,and parents. For more details about scores, visit collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/scores.The practice test you completed was written by the College Board’s Assessment Design &Development team using the same processes and review standards used when writing theactual SAT. Everything from the layout of the page to the construction of the questions accuratelyreflects what you’ll see on test day.How to Calculate Your Practice Test ScoresGET SET UPYou’ll need the answer sheet that you bubbled in while taking the practice test. You’ll alsoneed the conversion tables and answer key at the end of this document.Using the answer key, count up your total correct answers for each section. You may wantto write the number of correct answers for each section at the bottom of that section in theanswer key.Using your marked-up answer key and the conversion tables, follow the directions to get allof your scores.SAT Practice Test #1Created 8/4/20151

GET SECTION AND TOTAL SCORESYour total score on the SAT practice test is the sum of your Evidence-Based Reading and WritingSection score and your Math Section score. To get your total score, you will convert what we callthe “raw score” for each section — the number of questions you got right in that section — intothe “scaled score” for that section, then calculate the total score.GET YOUR EVIDENCE-BASED READING AND WRITING SECTION SCORECalculate your SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score (it’s on a scale of 200–800)by first determining your Reading Test score and your Writing and Language Test score. Here’s how:Count the number of correct answers you got on Section 1 (the Reading Test). There is nopenalty for wrong answers. The number of correct answers is your raw score.Go to Raw Score Conversion Table 1: Section and Test Scores on page 7. Look in the “Raw Score”column for your raw score, and match it to the number in the “Reading Test Score” column.Do the same with Section 2 to determine your Writing and Language Test score.Add your Reading Test score to your Writing and Language Test score.Multiply that number by 10. This is your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score.EXAMPLE: Keisha answered 29 of the 52 questions correctly on the SAT Reading Test and20 of the 44 questions correctly on the SAT Writing and Language Test. Using the table on page7, she calculates that she received an SAT Reading Test score of 27 and an SAT Writing andLanguage Test score of 23. She adds 27 to 23 (gets 50) and then multiplies by 10 to determineher SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score of 500.GET YOUR MATH SECTION SCORECalculate your SAT Math Section score (it’s on a scale of 200–800).Count the number of correct answers you got on Section 3 (Math Test — No Calculator) andSection 4 (Math Test — Calculator). There is no penalty for wrong answers.Add the number of correct answers you got on Section 3 (Math Test — No Calculator) andSection 4 (Math Test — Calculator).Use Raw Score Conversion Table 1: Section and Test Scores to turn your raw score into yourMath Section score.GET YOUR TOTAL SCOREAdd your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score to your Math Section score. Theresult is your total score on the SAT Practice Test, on a scale of 400–1600.SAT Practice Test #1Created 8/4/20152
