CBEST score system

The CBEST scores for the math and reading parts are based on the total number of correctly answered questions. Raw scores can be from 1 to 50, then converted to scaled scores. The writing part is a bit different in that the score comes from how well a student wrote his two essays. Scoring for the writing section is generally done on a four-point scale by at least two different people. Therefore, for each essay, the score is a combination of two different scores. The total score of the writing section includes both essay scores eventually being added up and converted to comply with the score scale.

Each part of the test is scored separately on a scale of 20 to 80, with a passing score in each section being a scale score of 41. To pass the CBEST, the total score a person receives when the three different scores are totaled must equal at least 123. If a person obtains a scaled score of 37 on each section, it is still acceptable and possible for him to pass the CBEST, as long as his entire test score is no less than 123. Any score below 37 means a person does not pass that part of the test and, thus, he does not pass the CBEST.
