The score a child gets on a test is called a 'raw score'. This is simply the total number of questions a child answers correctly. The child's 'standard score' on the test is calculated from the 'raw score' together with the child's age. This ensures that there is no advantage or disadvantage in how old the child is when taking the test. Age is allowed for when converting the 'raw score' to a 'standard score'. There is a full explanation of standard scores on our customer website.
