Scoring the FTCE Earth and Space Science Exam
The raw score that you earn will be combined with the percentage of questions you answered correctly and converted to a scale score. You'll need to earn at least a 200 to pass this test. This means you'll need to correctly answer at least 70% of the questions on the test. Since your test on earth and space sciences only has multiple-choice questions, you'll get unofficial score results at the test site, but you won't see your score report until about a month after the test. The score report that you receive will say 'pass' or 'not pass'; however, your results won't show a score unless you don't pass. You'll have access to your score report for 60 days after the release date.
