How Is the Score for an AMIR Test Calculated?
Differences between test versions given on each test date and differences between the versions themselves will not affect your score. The scoring method guarantees that even if you take the test along with a group of above-average or below-average ability, your score will be no different than if you had taken the test on another date.
Scores are calculated in a three-step process:
- Raw score - Each correct score is given one point. The number of correct answers in each section is the raw score for that section.
- Calculating test scores - Two of the three test sections are used determine the score (see how the test sections are used). In order to compare the scores of examinees who took different versions of the test or took the test on different dates, the raw scores of those two sections are converted to scores on a uniform scale.
- Final AMIR score - The section scores are used to calculate the final score of the test.
The final scores of the AMIR test are on a scale from 50 to 150.
As of March 15, 2020, AMIR test scores will be reported on a scale of 50-150 (instead of 150-250), the same scale used for the AMIRAM test and for the English domain on the Psychometric Entrance Test. This change in the scale is retroactive and will apply to scores on AMIR tests that were administered previously.
