DESCRIPTOR TERM: Qualifying Score on FLE
CODE: 7609
REPEALED: 5/2010
REVISION: May 18, 2007

The qualifying score on the Functional Literacy Exam is set at a composite scaled score of 699 for the three tests or an average of 70 percent correct on each test. Pupils may score as low as a scaled score of 211 (60 percent correct) on any test, but make this up by scoring higher than a scaled score of 233 (70 percent correct) on the other test(s). Any pupil scoring below a scaled score of 211 (60 percent correct) on any test will fail that test, regardless of his/her total score. Pupils will, however, be allowed to "bank" scaled scores of 233 (70 percent) or above for individual test areas. This means once a pupil passes one or more tests of the Functional Literacy Examination, he/she will have to retake only those tests not passed.
