I am really confused about this chart. :confused: http://www.ada.org/prof/ed/testing/dat/dat_estimate_score.pdf
According to this chart, if you get 17 questions right on RCT (reading comprehensive), you have a 30 on that sections. Is it reading comprehensive out of 50 questions? Has anyone used this chart before? It is on the ADA website, is it wrong? If you know how to read this chart, let me know please. I will so happy that if all you need is 17 questions out of 50 to get a score of 30 on the reading. :laugh:

The chart appears to be incomplete, but I have seen this chart before. I imagine what they are trying to say is this: Like you said the RCT section contains 50 questions for 3 passages. An example could be that 1st passage has 17 questions, 2nd passage has 17 questions, and the 3rd passage has 16 questions, bringing the total for the section to 50. This chart you have linked is just showing the score based on 1 passage. I hope that makes sense and helps out.
