Scores on the CLEP exams range from 20-80. The number of questions you get correct is called your raw score. Each correct multiple-choice answer receives one point, while each wrong or skipped answer does not receive any points. There are no points subtracted for incorrect answers, so it is in your best interest to answer all questions on the exam. The raw score is not reported; it is adjusted according to a formula specified by the College Board to compensate for differences in question difficulty on various forms of the test. The final score that is reported, called the scaled score, is computed based on this formula.
