How is it calculated?
Your CLEP score is calculated by a very simple process. You will receive one point for each question which you answer correctly. You do not lose any points for questions that you do not answer or get incorrectly. CLEP calls this your raw score.
The CLEP system then takes your raw score and does some adjusting based on the difficulty of the test and the questions on it. They don't give out this formula, but when they are done, your score will be between 20 and 80. Most schools use 50 as a passing score. Typically, you need to get at least 50% of the questions correct in order to pass.
