The 17 LT and Captains exam had no curve.  the LT exam from 17 had 2 throw outs 1 double answer.   The only test ever to have an actual curve prior to this 23 sgts and captains exam was the 2017 sgts exam.

The exams are not curved. Theyre adjusted due to different variations of tests given. The adjustments are created to neutralize any semblance of unfairness among the test takers.

A curve is when they make for example on the 17 sgts exam a 61=70 by determining the median score and use a bell format through the entire exam. This only started with the 17 sgts exam, which was the only test to have the curve at that point and current exams. Throwouts are not curves. They are badly written questions that must be thrown out or have double answers. The curved exams have throw outs, double answers and a curve. If the throwouts and doubles get you to that 61 you now get a 70. Its curved through out. Totally different. Theres no mystery to it. Just do a FOIL request and ask the reasons why a curve is implemented, who determines it, and how and youll get your answer If there is so much interest in it.

 Either way both add points not obtained from getting a question correct but from a formula. scaling changes the grade boundaries in regard to what equals 100. So you are most likely correct but they are essentially the same thing just done differently. I agree its most likely scaled and not curved.  But how do you know its scaled and not curved?  Did DCAS tell you this through an official request?  We are speaking like one is better than the other.

Simple math. Raw score + throwouts + 0.231 for every question wrong + seniority/medals/etc

The equation works everytime for every person on the last two exams plus 2017 Sgt Exam.

 Youre 100% correct. I used this same equation after I got my final score to see if it was legit. it was legit.
