Test Site Rater Methodology
We asked test-takers the following questions:
On a scale of 1-5 (5 being best):4.
1. How would you rate the proctors at your
2. How would you rate the quiet and comfort
of your test location?
3. How would you rate the overall site
experience at your test location?
a) More than enough desk space.
b) Enough desk space
c) Not enough desk space.
We have tabulated their responses and calculated an overall
score for each site by test administration date. For a given test
date, only schools that have 5 or more reviews are rated for that
The results for each location are calculated by taking the
average of the answers to questions 1-3 and taking the percentage
of respondents who selected a, �More than enough
desk space�, or b, �Enough desk space� on
question 4. Using those four numbers we calculated a site score
weighing the overall site experience most heavily (50%), and all
other scores equally.
To rate each location's desk space on a scale from 1-5 we
converted the % that answer a or
b on question 4 to a number between 1-5, we then
used the converted value in our formula:
Rating = .5(Overall Site Score) + (.5/3)(Proctor
Score) + (.5/3)(Quiet and Comfort Score) + (.5/3)(Converted Desk
