How the MET is scored

All sections of the MET are scored by the University of Michigan in the U.S.A.

The Listening and Reading and Grammar sections are computer-scored. Each correct answer carries equal weight within each section and there are no points deducted for wrong answers. Test takers receive a scaled score with a maximum of 80 for the Listening and Reading and Grammar sections, and a final score for these two sections; the final score is the total of the two sections.

Scores for the Speaking section are reported separately, also on a scale of 0–80.

The MET does not have a pass score. The test takers’ scaled score is calculated using an advanced mathematical model based on Item Response Theory. The scaled scores are not percentages. They do not show how many items test takers answered correctly, but rather where they stand on the language ability scale. This ensures that test scores are comparable across different administrations and fair to all test takers, regardless of when they took the test.

MET scores are reported on a CaMLA official score report form. The score report provides the following information:

  • A score for each of the sections
  • The final MET score, which is the total of the scores for the Listening and Reading and Grammar sections
  • Speaking test score
