ISEE Score Reports

With in-depth, easy to understand reports that detail both reasoning and achievement skills, the ISEE provides the critical insights you need to make informed admission decisions.

Guidelines for the Use of Scores

Students and families applying for admission to select schools provide a good deal of information for admissions officials to consider. Many factors used in selection, such as grades, teacher recommendations, and interviews, tend not to be standardized across the entire population of candidates. ISEE scores help fill a gap by providing a consistent measure for all candidates.
Please take a moment to review our downloadable ISEE Guidelines for the Use of Scores in the Admission Process for more information about utilizing ISEE scores as part of your school's admission process.
Accessing Score Reports

School Reports

ISEE Individual Student Reports (ISRs) are distributed electronically to schools and consultants only if a family has listed them as a score recipient. This happens as early as two days after an exam. Scores from paper administrations post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. Scores from online administrations may post more quickly. School score reports do not list the names of any other score recipients.

Family Reports

After taking an ISEE paper test, ISEE answer sheets and essays are sent to the ISEE Operations Office for scoring and production of an Individual Student Report (ISR). Scoring takes place after the answer sheets arrive, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. After scoring, the ISR is posted to a family's online account and an email is then sent to notify the family that this has taken place. After taking an online ISEE test at a school or Prometric site, score reports are posted online as soon as the test has been scored. ERB sends an email to the email address indicated in each student's registration information to let the family know the report is ready. Hard copies are not sent to homes unless requested for a fee.

What's on the Individual Student Report?

The ISEE Individual Student Report (or ISR) for schools provides information on an applicant's reasoning and achievement skills, as well as a writing sample.

Test Profile
The Test Profile provides information about the student's overall performance on each section of the ISEE, including their scaled score, percentile rank, stanine, and stanine analysis. Percentile ranks are reported with a reference to ISEE norms. These norms are based on independent school applicants in the same grade who have taken the test during the past three years.
In the Analysis portion, each section score indicates the number of questions answered correctly, the number of questions answered incorrectly, and the number of questions omitted or not reached. For each section, the score is broken down by type of question, providing more specific information about each student's relative strengths and weaknesses.
Writing Sample
The student's essay or writing sample is also included with the report. The essay or writing sample is unscored and is not shared with parents for test security purposes.
