    Hello,

    I just finished the VCLA and scored an 88% on the reading and a 60% on the writing is there a way to know I passed?

    Not yet, because your writing hasn't been scored yet. The 88% in reading is very promising, however.

    I just took the VCLA writing and scored 60% unofficial score report. Is there anyway to know if I passed?

    I took the VCLA reading test only today, and received a print out of my unofficial score. It was a 77%...its bugging me to know whether that is passing or not. If anybody could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Dear Teachers:

    I took VCLA today. I got an unofficial 80% on the reading subset and 85% on the writing subset. Additionally, I couldn't attempt the essay and the composition part, in the writing subset.

    Can anyone share an educated guess, as to how will I square in the final scores--pass or fail?

    Thank you,
    Studyforteacher

    80% on the reading subtest is respectable and 85% on the multiple-choice part of the writing subtest is strong. From what you've written, however, it seems that you attempted neither of the writing tasks in the writing subtest. According to the score report explanation at https://www.va.nesinc.com/Content/Docs/VCLA_ISR_Explanation.pdf, the two writing tasks together count for 50% of the writing subtest: leaving both blank amounts to giving away half of the available points on the test, and that would make it pretty hard to pass.

    Dear Moderator:
    Thank you for your insight. This leads me to the conclusion, that I might have to retake the writing subtest . I don't remember exactly but I read it somewhere, that the two writing sections are equivalent to 20% of the test. And the grammar and mechanics five questions are equivalent to 5% of the test. Which leaves us to 75% of the test that being: the multiple-choice section. ( I have no proof to support my claim)

    Nonetheless, I have no other choice than to wait for the official result.

    Thank you once again for your time,
    Studyforteacher

    The pdf to which I linked, which is on the VCLA website, explains it this way:

    "For the Writing subtest, the multiple-choice and short-answer items account for 50 percent of the total subtest score, while the response to the Summary assignment accounts for 20 percent and the response to the Composition assignment accounts for 30 percent of the total subtest score." I think that's fairly clear.

    Welcome to A to Z, Goldie317.

    Whether you'll have passed will depend on information we don't have yet, which is to say the writing tasks. Keep us informed, please.
