PAPA Composite Scores


I. Composite Score Option   for PAPA:

The Composite Scoring Option   for PAPA was initiated to enable a candidate who may excel in one area such   as mathematics, but who is not strong in another PAPA area, to receive a   passing score on the PAPA series. In order to qualify, a candidate must meet   a minimum score in each test area (Mathematics, Reading, and Writing) and   then exceed the passing score by an amount equal to the Standard Error of   Measurement in one or two of the other test areas. The candidate’s test   scores are added together, and if the scores total 686, the candidate has   passed the PAPA series. The Minimum Scores required for the Composite Scoring   Option are shown below.
