@Mom2aphysicsgeek I think the “test score” (i.e. the converted or scaled score) is actually more important than the raw score and that will vary by individual test. We’ve seen this with our other kids on both practice SATs and ACTs You can miss fewer questions overall but end up with a lower score because it was an easier test (and, conversely, miss more and end up with a higher score). The difference between the current “new” test and the old format is that the latter actually had some history to it! Any scaling we now see in an example or a practice test is based on a best guess as to how student would have done on the test - courtesy of College Board (which has tons of data so their guess is hopefully accurate).
Keep in mind, as well, that Ima B. Student is fictitious, as are her scores. I’m sure College Board didn’t mean for her to cause anxiety LOL.
