Step 1: Create/Edit your Test Form
To add a scale score mapping, navigate to the 'Test Forms' tab in 'Test Creation' and then create a new test form or edit an existing one to add your mapping rules.
Note: You cannot apply a scale score mapping to test forms that have been taken prior to scale score mapping being introduced to Surpass.
Step 2: Upload a .CSV fileTo add a scale score mapping file, go to the 'Test Form Details' tab and select the 'Scale Score Uploader' button.
Step 3: Check the Scale Score attributesTo ensure the CSV file uploads and applies successfully, ensure that:
- each raw score has an equivalent mapped score
- the maximum raw score is equal to the total number of marks for the test the scale score is greater than or equal to the previous one (i.e. if a raw score of '2' has a scaled score of '6', then a raw score of '3' cannot have a scaled score of '5').
- the scaled score does not contain more than 4 decimal places.
- there is scaled score for a raw score of '0'.
When all of these have been checked select 'OK'.
Note: If the total number of marks for a test form is edited after a scale score mapping has been uploaded, the test form will become invalid.
You can also apply a Scale Score Mapping from the Reporting section of Surpass. See the How to guide here.
