HOW TO READ YOUR SCORE REPORT


For the PreK4 Test
OVERVIEW
This score report provides your test results for the Pennsylvania Educator Certification Tests (PECT) PreK4 test
module(s) that you took on the date(s) indicated on your report.
Please note: This score report is for your records only. Keep a copy for your permanent records. Your test results will
be reported directly to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, to the Pennsylvania program provider where you
have completed or will complete a teacher education program, and to any additional program providers (up to two) you
identified when you registered for the test. In addition, your test results may be reported to other program providers or
offices authorized or required by law to receive this information.
All tests in the PECT program are criterion referenced; that is, they are designed to measure your knowledge and skills
in relation to an established standard of performance (a criterion) rather than in relation to the performance of other
candidates. The scores indicated on this report are for the purpose of securing Pennsylvania teacher certification. They
are NOT intended to be used for employment decisions, college admission decisions, or any other purpose.

TEST RESULTS
Under the test code and the name of the module (e.g., 006 PreK-4 Module 1) you will find your Test Date, your Total
Test Scaled Score, and your Status. Your scores on each module are based on the number of test questions in that
module that you answered correctly and are reported on a scale that ranges from 100 to 300. For Module 1, a scaled
score of 197 represents the minimum passing score. For Modules 2 and 3, a scaled score of 193 represents the
minimum passing score. Your status is listed as "Passed" for a module if your total test scaled score is at or above the
minimum passing score for that module (e.g., 197 or above for Module 1). If your total test scaled score is less than the
minimum passing score, your status is listed as "Not Passed."
Scaled scores. Results for each module are reported on a scale of 100300. For Module 1, a scaled score of 197
represents the approved performance criterion, i.e., the cutscore for the module. For both Module 2 and Module 3 the
approved performance criterion is represented by a scaled score of 193. Cutscores have been established by the
Pennsylvania Department of Education based on the recommendations of panels of Pennsylvania educators.

SUMMARY REPORT
At the bottom of your score report is a summary report chart that presents vital information about your test-taking
performance, including your current status on the entire test. You should review the information presented and confirm
its accuracy, especially noting the highest scores you have earned on the test modules across all test attempts.
Your status on the test is reported as "Passed," "Not Yet Passed," or "Incomplete." Your status on the test is reported as
Passed if you achieved the minimum passing score or higher on each of the three test modules (i.e., a scaled score of
197 or above on Module 1 and scaled scores of 193 or above on Modules 2 and 3). Your status is reported as "Not Yet
Passed" if you have not yet met or exceeded the minimum passing score on each of the three modules. Your status is
reported as "Incomplete" if you have not yet taken all of the modules that make up the test.

DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION
Your score report shows your performance on each objective of the test module. For each listed objective you will find
the Approximate Number of Test Questions administered to you and the Percentage of Items Answered Correctly.
Your reported performance on each individual objective of the test is provided for the sole purpose of helping you
identify your areas of strength and weakness on the test (especially if you are required to register and retake one or
more of modules of the test). You do not "pass" or "fail" individual objectives. Your eligibility for Pennsylvania teacher
certification will be determined, in part, on the basis of your overall performance on each module of the test, represented
by your total test scaled scores.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Retaking the test. You may retake the test by following the same registration procedures you completed for previous
test administrations. Please note you must allow 30 days between test dates.
