June SAT test takers are increasingly expressing their displeasure with the scoring of their test. The College Board tweeted the June test was easier so they employed a statistical process called equating to normalize the scores against the other tests. As a result, getting a certain number of questions wrong resulted in a lower score on the June test than on previous tests.
It stinks and we certainly empathize with the test takers. However, if the equating resulted in the same percentile scores as previous tests, we can see why the College Board is digging in and refusing to rescore the June test.
