PSATs 2007 - One Less Question to Worry About

Michelle Hartwell -

eprep test prep videoQuestion 21 from the writing skills section of the Saturday form of the 2007 PSAT/NMSQT was removed from scoring. Seems there was a printing error that affected the test books. Apparently several letters of a word appearing in one of the answer choices for Question 21 did not print properly, so The College Board decided to not score question 21 for all test takers. However, raw scores will ultimately not be affected. According The College Board: “Even with the removal of this question, the statistical process of equating, which is used to translate raw scores (based on right, wrong, and omitted responses) to scaled scores, ensures that the 20-80 scaled scores on this section are comparable to scores on the writing sections of other editions of the PSAT/NMSQT.”
