SAT Test Scoring
To prepare College Board SAT results, first raw SAT scores are computed. For each correctly answered question, you are granted one mark. There is a negative marking of quarter of a mark for each wrong answer, depending on the type of question. The raw marks are then transformed into scaled scores between 200 and 800. This is done through the process of 'equating'. The multiple choice questions of the writing section are scored between 20 and 80 and the essay is granted a score between 2 and 12. Two readers read each essay and mark it between 1 and 6. Then the two scores are added to give a score between 2 and 12. Following this a score between 200 and 800 is granted to the writing section.
The SAT test results are available online after nearly three weeks of the test. The written official score report takes nearly five weeks to be released.
