    I just did the practice test for Foundations of Gerontology and Psych of Adulthood and Aging. I have to take both ECEs in the next two weeks.

    Does anyone know where I can find a rough calculation of a raw score 70/100 on the FG - into what that would be as a letter grade? :kiss:

    Thanks!

    The number you get is the percentage of questions you answered correctly. However, not all of the questions apply to your grade and they don't tell you which questions don't count. In other words, you'll never know what percent of graded questions you got correct, even though that is the number your grade will be based on.

    The scaling for letter grades is different for each test. That is, you might need 90 for an A or you might need an 85 for an A. EC never directly states what those scales are, but I did once find the information hidden away in a seemingly unrelated pdf file from the website. I couldn't tell you what it is or how to find it now. Sorry.

    I hated those tests because neither the content guide nor the questions on the test felt like they were focused an anything specific. After studying, I felt like I learned nothing and after taking the tests, I feel like I accomplished nothing.

    Took Foundations of Gerontology ECE today. Finished in 50 minutes, got an A. I'd been getting 60-75% on practice exams. BTW, I got emails from Excelsior and there really isn't a way to tell what you'd get on the actual exam based on the practice tests.
