Demystifying the GMAT: Where Do Scale Scores Comes from?
Rudner, Lawrence M.
Graduate Management Admission Council
GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) scaled scores convey the same level of ability over time, and GMAT percentiles convey the competitiveness of scores relative to today's GMAT test takers. In an earlier column, the author discussed the role of the GMAT scaled scores and percentiles. Here, he gets more technical and discusses how GMAT scaled scores were developed. Special attention is given to the scale for the new Integrated Reasoning section, which launches June 5.
