Much has been made of the mysterious “ERB code” on the descriptive portion of ERB score reports.  Many families believe that testers embed top-secret ERB language that only private school admissions directors can decode.

Part of my job as a NYC and Westchester private schools educational consultant is to help families comprehend what the performance and verbal sections, subsections, scores, and descriptions mean, if retests are possible, describe splits and scatter, and what ERB scores are needed at what schools.  It is truly outrageous how this one flawed test is such a crucial factor in the private schools admissions race.
