What is equating?

Different SSAT forms are built and administered to students each year. Although test developers follow specific procedures to ensure that test difficulty is as similar as possible across test forms, in reality there are variations in test form difficulty. A statistical procedure called score equating is used to adjust scores to compensate for minor form difficulty differences so that scores on different test forms are comparable.
