Can someone tell me how the scoring is calculated on the
test?

What is the passing score?
What is a perfect score?

It seems like passing is 700 and a perfect score is 1000.

Is this correct?

Thanks,

Sarah

hello Sarah,
could tell you a great deal about how to score.. but i guess thats not what
Maybe you are but in with exams in mind.
okay 700 is the passing score.
max score is not known.
i have heard from people who have scored 1024
its supposed to be adaptive in the sense that the weightage of next question
is decided on current one being right or wrong.

The test is not adaptive, because you can go back to previous questions and
still change the answers.. Adaptive tests work in a different way, where

well then define a score of 811
since you moved to the next question... the weightage was assigned on your
now if you go back and change the answer... the question you moved back from
is still there... and its weightage wont change

If the weightage does not change based on your answer.. how can that be
was final and you do not have an option to go back. Since your questions
depend on your previous answer and they have their weightage (toughness) {
if you can go back, the question's weightage lose its meaning}. If you had
taken a real adaptive test, you would have understand how it really differ
from these microsoft tests.. People who have taken GRE would agree with me.

i did say adaptive "in the sense.... .... " it is not fully adaptive... yes
i agree with you on the fact that a cent percent adapter test shouldn't and
wouldn't allow you to go back and change the answer.

So the idea is to answer every question wrong so they
stay easy and then go back and answer them all right?

Good try but no cigar. As Kumar as already said, the old microsoft
adaptive tests did not allow you to go back, once you answered a
question, that's it for that question and the testing software would
work out the next question to be answered, If after a varying number
of questions, the software decided you were stupid, it would tell you
