How We Created This DAT Score Calculator?
We relied mainly on the new 2021 report by the American Dental Association that was released a few months ago. This report provided statistics about last year’s DAT results by pre-dental students. Based on those statistics we were able to figure out what score you should get in order to be for example in the 50th percentile (spoiler: it’s 18/30). Those statistics were the basis for creating this calculator to make it as close to real world numbers as possible.
For example, these were the results for 2021 tests. You can see that the mean (average) score was 18.66 vs 18.71 in 2016. So, average scores have stabilized in recent years.
Also, we used this article from DAT Booster to be able to figure out how to scale scores for each section based on the number of correct answers. The ADA testing committee do not usually share how they do the scaling exactly as that varies but we believe the scaling table shared by DAT Booster is very close to the real method used by the ADA.
