) A couple of posters on another thread have said that for their state bars the mean MBE scaled score reported for Feb '15 is a 136.
2) According to this graph that I got off the NCBE website, it looks like the Feb '15 mean scaled score ties the lowest mean MBE score in the last ten
Would be cool to see if we can start making correlations/conjectures as to whether there is any connection between how the MBE is scaled and how the California essays are scaled. That is, does the low mean scaled score have a good effect, bad effect, or no effect on the amount that the essays are curved.
I used the February 2010 scale for California with a multiplier (Raw written score x 3.0750) - 490.3599
I don't have any data (scaling multipliers/value) for Feb 2003 which was 135.9 (closest to 136.170) Feb 2015.
Seems very unforgiving with any score under 600 raw for essays unless you get at least a 145 raw on MBEs.
