Types Of GED Test Scores

The test scores are basically of two types i.e. standard scores and percentile ranks. The standard scores are applied where the tests have more questions as compared with other tests. This kind of test may contain multiple-choice questions and other difficult forms of test. The standard score is used in such a condition, so that the comparison of the different scores across tests and test form are made possible.
