How is the ISEE Test Scored?
Individual Student Report (ISR)
The ISEE ISR provides information on an applicant’s reasoning and achievement skills.
- The Test Profile provides information about the student’s overall performance on each section of the ISEE, except the essay which is unscored and shared with the schools to which the student is applying.
- The ISEE scores are reported in four ways in the Test Profile: scaled score, percentile rank, stanine, and stanine analysis.
- The Test Profile reports percentile ranks with a reference to ISEE norms. These norms are based on independent school applicants in the same grade who have taken the test during the past three years.
- In the Analysis portion, each section score indicates the number of questions answered correctly, the number of questions answered incorrectly, and the number of questions omitted or not reached. For each section, the score is broken down by type of question, providing more specific information about a student’s relative strengths and weaknesses.
