Raw scores are determined by computing the total number of missing numerals responded correctly within the 1 minute time period. This data can be interpreted in a norm-referenced way via percentiles or categorically in a standard interpretive format (e.g., below average, average, above average, etc.). Scores are also interpreted by converting progress over time into a Rate of Improvement (ROI) index, typically derived by using an ordinary least squares regression line through the data. A composite score is not calculated.

TEN has 33 alternate forms per skill, per grade.
