There is no wa...This is not a bad question at all. There is no way to mimic the actual exam scoring. The best I've come up with is to look at it mostly on a correct percentage basis. When grading your simulations you have to look carefully. I did a journal entry out of order (Debit B first instead of Debit A) and it marked it as wrong, although the entry was correct.<br /><br />I take # of correct MC / 90 questions = MC%. I then multiply that by .7 (for the 70% of the score from the MC). I then count up the total number of answers items in both simulations and the number I got correct. I count each research as an additional item (you have to look to see if you got it correct, the computer won't grade it for you). # of items correct / # of items available = % on simulations. I then multiply that by .2 (for the 20% the simulations count for). I add the two number together and that is my score for the exam before counting the written part. Since I've always hated the written part my goal has always been to get a 75 before counting any points for the written. I have done average on one written and above average on the other. I figure I can get 5 out of the 10 points on the written. I add 5 to my previous number and I have an estimated score. It isn't an exact art, but its the best I've come up with.Dalehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03880433518147497368noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-553467496324806396.post-83340143550560113062010-04-13T17:53:02.808-05:002010-04-13T17:53:02.808-05:00This may sound like a dumb question but how do you...This may sound like a dumb question but how do you grade your tests with simulations? I know MC are 70% and that written communication is 10% but do you just allocate the other 20% evenly by averaging the scores that Becker gives you? I just do not know how to check how I am doing on these practice tests.Ana Phttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04088649453854145715noreply@blogger.com
