How Are SCAT Scores Calculated?

The CTY SCAT scores are calculated in three steps: 

Raw Score. The raw score is calculated by tallying the total number of questions answered correctly out of the 50 scored questions. For example, if a child correctly answered 27 out of 50 questions, his or her raw score is 27/50.

Scaled Score. Scaled scores range from 400 to 514, according to the test version.


Elementary LevelIntermediate Level Advanced Level
Verbal Range400-471405-487 410-496
Quantitative Range412-477417-506 424-514

SCAT Percentiles
. The SCAT percentile is used to compare students to those in higher grades. Since the SCAT is an above grade level test, students take a test designed for higher grades and the scaled scores are compared to performance norms of students in higher grades. For example, a 2nd and 3rd grade student takes the Elementary SCAT version, designed for 3rd - 6th graders and their scores are compared to the norms of 4th and 5th grade students, respectively.

  • 2nd graders are compared to 4th graders.
  • 3rd graders are compared to 5th graders.
  • 4th graders are compared to 6th graders.
  • 5th graders are compared to 8th graders.
  • 6th graders are compared to 9th graders.
  • 7th graders are compared to 12th graders.
  • 8th graders are compared to 12th graders.
