how is the hesi graded?

  1. 0
    I am taking the hesi a2 entrance exam soon and I was wondering how it's graded? Is there an accumulative score for science? I know this question is kind of unclear but if you can do the best you can to answer it I'd appreciate it.

    they break each section down into individual scores to let you know how you did in each area (example you will see a score in all of the following: math - fractions, decimals, ratios ect..) and then you receive an overall cumulative score. it shows up as a percent.

    Ok thank you so much. Are the science score and english scores combined?

    what sections are you taking? every school is different. there is math, reading, grammar, vocab, anatomy, chemistry, biology and physics. i only had to take the first 6 tests.

    It's a cumulative score. So your final score is averaged out between all the sectoins you have taken. I did not have to take the science portion.

    But here is what mine looked like, so you have a better understanding:

    Reading Comprehension: 92.00% [A cumulative or average score of the below sections]
    -->Meaning Word use-100%
    -->Conclusion 66.7%
    -->Implications- 92.31%

    Vocabulary & General Knowledge-88.00%
    English Language Composite Score-89.33%

    My cumulative score for the above sections was a 90.50%
    The school I applied to didn't care much for reading so they averaged out my Math [94%] and English [89.33%] and had an average or cumulative score of 91.665% as my HESI score.

    Hope that cleared some things up.
