A Miller Analogies Test raw score to percentile conversion is not easy to come by. Pearson no longer uses or releases raw scores for students. Pearson has also not provided any official data that would make it easy to convert scores yourself. However, I have collected what resources are available to give you a rough estimate. Here we go…
MAT score conversion
If you have not read the blog on MAT old scores conversion, I would definitely suggest it; it will explain how I came by this information, and the limits of what you can expect from it. Anyway, to convert your MAT raw score to a percentile, you can start by converting it to a scaled score.
|Raw Score||Scaled Score||Raw Score||Scaled Score|
Once you have a scaled score, you can estimate your score percentile here:
- 400-404 = 50th percentile
- 405-409 = 60th percentile
- 410-415 = 70th percentile
- 416-420 = 80th percentile
- 421-425 = 90th percentile
- 430-440 = 95th percentile
- 450-600 = 99th percentile
Unfortunately, ranges are the best estimates that can be provided at this time. I’ve gone through all the available information in terms of Pearson MAT resources, official practice tests, High IQ societies (which have MAT score information), and anything else I could find from a reliable source, such as colleges and universities.
Thus far, the information from multiple sources seems to corroborate. I can also say from personal experience that my number of correct answers on practice tests (raw score) was between 70-76, my official MAT score was 454, and my percentile rank was 98th. Thus, most of this information lined up pretty closely when I compare it to my own scoring.
I hope you find it similarly useful.
If you’d like to learn more about the MAT scoring, I also recommend looking at our Miller Analogies Bell Curve article. It’s full of a ton of information that really helps you understand how these percentile rankings work.
