      To determine the student’s final examination score, find the student’s total test raw score in the
column labeled “Raw Score” and then locate the scale score that corresponds to that raw score. The
scale score is the student’s final examination score. Enter this score in the space labeled “Final
Score” on the student’s answer sheet.

        All student answer papers that receive a scale score of 60 through 64 must be scored a
second time to ensure the accuracy of the score. For the second scoring, a different committee of
teachers may score the student’s paper or the original committee may score the paper, except that no
teacher may score the same open-ended questions that he/she scored in the first rating of the paper.
The school principal is responsible for assuring that the student’s final examination score is based on
a fair, accurate and reliable scoring of the student’s answer paper.

      Because scale scores corresponding to raw scores in the conversion chart change from one
examination to another, it is crucial that for each administration, the conversion chart provided for that
administration be used to determine the student’s final score. The chart above is usable only for this
administration of the Physical Setting/Chemistry Examination.
