My Chances shows the test scores and distribution of the last year's ACT and SAT scores for enrolled students. GuidedPath accommodates both old and new ACT and SAT tests, so My Chances now includes 3 sets of graphs and data: one for ACT and two for SAT.
My ACT Score Comparison in My Chances
The ACT scoring has not changed, so both the new ACT and older ACT (before 9/2015) scores are mapped to the ACT graph in My Chances.
The best test scores across all ACT tests taken by a student, either before or after 9/2015, are shown on the "My ACT Score Comparison" and under "My ACT Scores" in the ACT - Enrolled Freshman Score Distribution table.
My SAT Score Comparison in My Chances
For the My SAT Score Comparison, the 3 sections of the SAT before 3/2016, or old SAT, are converted using the College Board concordance tables to create a new SAT graph that uses the 3 subscore Tests that are scored form 10-40.
The subscore Tests scored from 10-40 are used because they map most closely to the 3 test sections (Reading, Writing and Language and Math) from the old SAT before 3/2016. The concordance tables show the mapping for all 3 of these sections and allows results of the new SAT to be compared to enrolled freshman distributions that took the old SAT before 3/2016.
If the student has taken the new SAT, their scores recorded in My Tests must include the subscore Tests for Reading, Writing and Language, and Math, using the 10-40 range. These Test scores are directly related to the SAT section scores in the 200-800 range. Both the two SAT section scores (200-800) and the 3 Test scores (10-40) are shown on the My Scores page.
How do the 10-40 scores compare to the 200-800 scores on the new SAT?
- The Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score equals the Reading Test score plus the Writing and Language Test score multiplied by 10.
- The Math Section score equals the Math Test score multiplied by 20.
