ETS Testing

What does my score mean?

Total scores for the ETS Major Field Test are reported on a scale of 120-200. Students who score 160 or better will receive a signed Certificate of Achievement. Over the past administrations of the test, USF Sarasota-Manatee business majors have performed very well in comparison to the nation.

Who will see my score?

USF Sarasota-Manatee will report scores in the aggregate form only. Instructors and the Dean will be able to view individual scores. There are no negative consequences to performing poorly on the test; however, we hope that you will apply your best effort when taking the exam. You can report your individual score to prospective employers or when applying for a master’s degree, and don’t forget that you will also receive a signed Certificate of Achievement if you achieve a score of 160 or better. Feel free to contact the University’s Institutional Research office for assistance on how best to highly your score.

What if I need special accommodations when taking tests?

Any student requiring disability testing accommodations must be registered with the Students with Disabilities Services office and make arrangements two weeks prior to the test date. Please notify your instructor and contact Pat Lakey, SDS Coordinator, at 359-4714.

What do I need to bring with me on the day of test?

Nothing, the proctors will provide everything you need. Use of a calculator is not permitted.
