- Raw Score
The number of items per test or subtest that a student answers correctly. Because the total number of items varies from test to test, raw scores cannot be directly compared with each other. For example, a raw score of 18 on a 20-item test has a significantly different meaning from a raw score of 18 on a 40-item test. So that they can be directly compared, raw scores are generally converted to scaled scores and other derived scores.
- Reference Population

The degree to which the results of an assessment can be counted on to consistently measure student knowledge, skills, and performance in particular subject areas. A test is reliable when:
tasks or items that measure the same thing produce consistent scores over time the administration of multiple test forms or multiple administrations of the same form to the same students produces consistent results
Reliability is generally expressed in terms of a reliability coefficient and/or standard error of measurement. A higher reliability coefficient for a test means that the resulting scores will have smaller random measurement errors. A tests validity depends on its degree of reliability
