Criteria for Passing

To pass the HSCT, a student must attain a passing score on both the communications section and the mathematics section. Results on each section of the HSCT are reported using an equated scale score. A student's total number of correct answers is converted to a score on a scale that ranges from approximately 525 to 800. The passing score for each section, communications and mathematics, is 700. Rules for establishing a passing score of 700 are specified by 1994 State Board of Education Rule 6A-1.09421, FAC.
