PSSR-229543State Transcript: Calculate an SAT and ACT Super Score

State Transcript: Version 3.1

When the VA State Transcript report generates the SAT and ACT score information, the report extracts the top scores from each test and places them in the score column. A new row displays after each score type to report the Superscore. The SAT SuperScore is calculated by totaling the printed SAT scores. The ACT SuperScore is calculated by totaling the printed ACT scores, dividing by the number of scores, and then rounding to the nearest whole number.
