**What is a good Algebra 1 Regents score?**

A good Algebra 1 Regents score is anything 3 or up. If you receive a performance level of 3 or higher, it means you have passed the exam.

In order to receive an advanced Regents diploma, you’ll need to score a passing mark for all three Regents math exams. If you’d like to get a designation with your diploma (i.e. with honors), you must receive a scale score of 90 or higher on all required Regents exams.

**What is the average Algebra 1 Regents score?**

There isn’t much public record when it comes to the average Algebra 1 Regents score. The closest thing is probably the Gillibrand Report, which provided overall statistics around Regents Math performance in recent years.

In it, it was reported that New York City had 55% of high school students achieve a passing mark on their Mathematics Regents exams. Other regions typically fell between 50-60% of students receiving a passing score.

Things to note in this though: it appears from our analysis they did a simple average among the major counties to reach the 55% average (which would not account for differences in student counts for exams administered), and the number includes all math subjects, such as Algebra II, and Geometry Regents.

**Why are Algebra 1 Regents exams curved?**

Algebra 1 Regents exams are curved as an attempt to standardize test results for each year’s respective group of tests. Variances often arise between cohorts of students, so the New York State Education Department does its best in determining what a scaled score of 65 (which translates to a passing performance level 3) is for each exam.

This has been a point of contention amongst educators in recent years, as the curves have trended downwards, meaning students need to achieve at lower levels than in the past in order to pass the Algebra 1 Regents exam.

**How do I get a 5 on Algebra 1 Regents?**

Based on the January 2020 Algebra 1 Regents exam, students that receive a raw score of between 68 and 86 receive a 5 for their performance level.

There are many ways to get to this number. One way would be getting 20 multiple choice questions right, 50% of Part II questions right, and all of Parts III and IV. This test result would yield:

- 40 credits for Part I
- 8 credits for Part II
- 16 credits for Part III
- 6 credits for Part IV
**Total**: 70 credits, translating to an 86 scale score, and a 5 performance level.

The range of 68 to 86 for your raw score is a general range that has remained steady in more recent Algebra 1 Regents exams. We went back to January 2019 saw this range held true up until August 2018’s exam.

**How do I get a 4 on Algebra 1 Regents?**

Students that score between 51-67 on the January 2020 Algebra 1 Regents exam received a 4 on the test.

Like any other score on this exam, there are many ways to get to a 4 on Algebra 1 Regents. One way would be getting 18 of the multiple choice questions right, 50% of Part II questions right, and 50% of Parts III and IV. This would result in:

- 36 credits for Part I
- 8 credits for Part II
- 8 credits for Part III
- 3 credits for Part IV
**Total**: 55 credits, translating to an 81 scale score, and a 4.

**How do I get a 3 on Algebra 1 Regents?**

If you scored between a 27 and 50 on the January 2020 Algebra 1 Regents exam, you would have received a 3 on the test.

Like we went over in the prior two cases, there are tons of ways to get here! For example, you could have gotten 10 multiple choice questions right, 25% of Part II, and 50% in Parts III and IV. This would result in:

- 20 credits for Part I
- 4 credits for Part II
- 8 credits for Part III
- 3 credits for Part IV
**Total: 35 credits, translating to a 72 scale score, and a passing 3.**

**Why should I use this Algebra 1 Regents score calculator?**

Albert’s Algebra 1 Regents score calculator uses the official scoring conversion charts released by the New York State Education Department. This means our calculations are the most accurate and up-to-date.
