## How do you convert a raw score to a scaled score?

Apply the formula to every raw score to get your scaled score. i.e., we know that the transformation formula is scaled score = (raw score + 15)/2. If we apply the formula, we get that for a raw score of 10; it corresponds to a scaled score of 12.5.

## How are WAIS-IV scores calculated?

The WAIS-IV is scored by summing the raw scores for each subtest; each raw subtest score is then converted to a scaled scored (M = 10; SD = 3). To obtain each index score, the sum of scaled scores is computed for the core subtests that comprise each index and then converted to a standard score.

## What is a scaled score on the WAIS-IV?

Scaled score from 1-4 is described as exceptional weakness, very poorly developed, or far below average with a corresponding percentile rank of 1-2. Scaled score from 5-7 is described as weakness, poorly developed, or below average with a corresponding percentile rank of 5-16.

## How do you convert raw score to scaled LSAT?

A scaled LSAT score is a conversion of the raw score, also known as the familiar 120–180 number. For example, a raw score of 67 is 67 correct answers, which converts to a scaled score of 156. A raw score of 58—meaning 58 correct answers—converts to a scaled score of 151.

## How do you convert a raw score to a percentile?

It will give you a relative position, for example, 1 to 99. The numbers = the percentage of scores below your raw score. Obtaining a percentile rank of 80 means that whatever your raw score was, 80% of the other raw scores were below yours….Percentile.

Raw Score Percentile
85 60
90 70

## How is WAIS-IV FSIQ calculated?

The FSIQ is determined by the sum of the scaled scores from the 10 subtests of the WISC (each subtest’s scaled score can range from 1-19, higher if extended norms are used; the scaled scores are NOT the same as the composite scores that have a mean of 100).

## How do you read Wechsler scores?

Each Index Scale is comprised of two subtests that together make up the scale result….WISC-V Structure.

Composite Score Range Traditional Description WISC-V Classification
110 – 119 High Average High Average
90 – 109 Average Average
80-89 Low Average Low Average
70 – 79 Borderline Very Low

## What do WAIS-IV subtests measure?

The subtest was developed to measure non-verbal reasoning and the ability to understand abstract visual information. The individual is presented with a picture of a pair of scales in which there are missing weights, and they have to choose the correct weights to keep the scales in balance.

## What is a composite score on the WAIS?

The Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) composite score is derived from 10 subtest scores and is considered the most representative estimate of global intellectual functioning.

## How do you score a WAIS block design?

The Block Design No Time Bonus (BDN) process score is calculated by awarding only four points for correctly completed items for which time-bonus points are possible. Calculate this score carefully, not awarding more than 4 points for any item.

## What are the 6 indexes on the WAIS-IV?

Index scores and scales Verbal Comprehension Index (VCI) Perceptual Reasoning Index (PRI) Working Memory Index (WMI) Processing Speed Index (PSI)

## What is a raw score of 75 on the LSAT?

## Why do we convert raw scores?

You transform your raw scores to standard scores. When we standardize scores, we can compare scores for different groups of people and we can compare scores on different tests.

## What is raw score value?

Raw scores are the observed values of the variables. Deviation scores are obtained by subtracting the mean from the raw scores, deviation score = x = (X – mean). Deviation scores have a mean = 0 and the same standard deviation as the raw scores.

## What is raw score and percentile?

Percentiles and Percentile Ranks Apercentile rank describes the percentage of people in the comparison group whoscored below a particular score. For example, if a student’s raw score of 62 corresponds to a percentile rankof 98, that student performed better than 98% of the other test-takers.
