What is the passing score in the test?
Your performance is evaluated against a set standard and not against the performance of other examinees. The scores you obtain are converted to scaled scores and the results are declared in the range of 100 to 300 with 220 being the passing score. For the Basic Skills Test, you must pass all the three subtests to obtain the credential. However, you can pass each subtest separately and once you have passed a subtest, you need not reappear for it.
What does the score report contain?
The numeric scores are disclosed only when you have not passed the test. If you have passed the test only the passing status is declared.
Your performance in each sub-area is reported in the results. With this information, you can concentrate more on the areas you have under-performed.
Your performance in the sub-areas is reported as follows:
- (++++)- In case of multiple-choice questions, this result means that you have answered most of the questions correctly and in case of the performance-assignment type questions, it means that your answer shows strong skills.
- (+++)- This indicates that you have answered many of the questions correctly in the multiple-choice questions category and that you exhibit satisfactory skills in the performance-assignment type questions.
- (++)- This indicates that you have answered some of the multiple-choice questions correctly and your answer in the performance-assignment type question shows that you possess limited skills in that area.
- (+)- If you have answered only a few or none of the multiple-choice questions correctly and your answer to the performance-assignment type question lacks skills, you will be awarded this scale.

How to request for rescoring of the test?
You cannot request for rescoring of the computer-based tests. However, for the paper-based tests, you can submit a hand written request for rescoring. The letter must contain your name, the last four digits of your Social Security Number, the test date, the name and code of the test. $25 is charged for rescoring the multiple-choice questions sections and $30 is charged for Basic Skills essay subtest rescoring.
The result report is elaborate and you can understand the areas where you have not performed up to the expected level. If you have not passed the test, based on these results, you can study harder to pass the test in your subsequent attempt.
