<statistics> A raw score is the number of items answered correctly on a given test. For example, if a test had 59 items and the student got 23 correct the raw score would be 23. Raw scores by themselves have little or no meaning. Raw scores are converted to 1) developmental scores such as grade equivalents or 2) status scores such as percentile rank, normal curve equivalents, or stanines in order to be interpreted meaningfully.
