The added value of reporting subscores on a college admission test (SweSAT) was examined in this study. Using a CTT-derived objective method for determining the value of reporting subscores, it was concluded that there is added value in reporting section scores (Verbal/Quantitative) as well as subtestscores. These results differ from a study of the SAT I and a study of a basic skills test and thus highlight the need for practitioners and researchers to gather empirical evidence to support the reporting ofsubscores. The cause of the disparate results seems to be related to differences in the composition ofthe tests rather than differences in the composition of the examinee groups.
