Scaled Scores

In addition to Level scores, the Reading and Listening sections of the STAMP for CEFR assessment also provide Scaled Reading and Scaled Listening Scores columns. Scaled scores provide more detail within each level and sub-level:

  • A Level (Pre-A1, A1, A2)
  • B Level (B1, B2)
  • C Level (C1)

As Reading and Listening scaled scores are much more detailed than levels and sub-levels, they can be used to track incremental progress within the levels (pre- and post-testing) and measure growth of student cohorts. Learn more about STAMP scaled scores here.

Scaled Score Ranges

Note that for the scaled scores the standard error of measurement (SEM) is approximately 10 scaled points for an individual test taker’s results. Keep this in mind when comparing scores for two different test takers or when interpreting a test taker’s score in a higher-stakes testing situation such as the Seal of Biliteracy.
