    Where did/do you score highest on standardized tests?

    Where do you score highest on standardized tests? I always score the highest in science (98), social studies (99) and reading comprehension (95). I would score higher in math, but they give unclear questions and 30% of the time, I can't understand what they are trying to ask. And for computation, they give 5 minuets for 40 questions, so I rush.

    Social Studies and Reading/Comprehension and Writing. I usually score in the 99th or 98th percentiles. I do pretty far above average on Mathematics.

    High 90s during elementary/middle school
    Low-to-high 80s in high school

    I dunno. I did something once which put me off the grid for 'academic comfort level' and waywayway up there on 'analytical thinking' - or maybe it was 'abstract reasoning.' Whatever that means.

    What does 'standardized' mean? i.e. what's the standard? Not everybody you speak to is from the U.S. ;-)

    My highest scores are Math and English (the writing skills and grammar portion, that is). My lowest score is consistently reading. I don't have the best reading comprehension on the planet...

    Analytic logic tests are my best.

    I seem to get slightly higher scores on IQ tests that are verbally weighted and lower scores on spatial ones--you know those tests that show a two-dimensional rendering of a three dimensional object and ask you to rotate it 90 degrees on the Y axis? I cannot see it easily. I'm spatially stupid, and I'll have a headache by the end of the test. (this may be a girly brain thing, legitimately--as opposed to a culturally brainwashed girly thing.)

    My GREs, I got every analytic logic question (missed one in language and a couple in math/s, though I don't know that the GRE is a three-part test any more, so this may be nonsense to even adult US people). Makes sense, as I could do logic puzzles for hours. I wish I could have been a code breaker 100 years ago--that'd have been a fun job.

    I seem to do better if timed and given inadequate time than if given all the time in the world (wherein I start analyzing alternate meanings to phrases and come up with a bunch of valid non-standard answers, if I could only explain them, which in a tiny round circle of a computer scoring sheet, I cannot).

    Back in the Dark Ages when I was in elementary school, there were not statewide or nationwide achievement tests. There was the Iowa* Basic Skills test, used primarily to "track" students into "smart" "average" and "stupid" classrooms. I believe I took those in first (6 years old) and sixth grades (11 years old); while results were kept "secret" from students and parents, I was browbeaten numerous times with my results. So much for secrecy. Thankfully, I don't recall the scores.

    --

    * what is it with midwestern farm states and testing in the US? Iowa Basics and the MMPI, which decides how sane you are by comparing you to a (small) bunch of boring married Minnesota farmers of Scandanavian stock, as if that is somehow the picture of perfect mental health. WTF?

    In the united states, every year (every quarter in two years in my state), we have to take a test to see what the class is good and bad at.

    My scores were similar across the board. On the ACT, the English portion score was about 4 points above the Math one.

    Ah. Thanks. If it's US-specific then I'm not part of the data group.

    I'm not an INTJ, but I felt like answering anyway. I always got pretty high scores in science. Typical for an INTP.
