Convert your old (pre-fall 2006) FCQ score
Enter your old (pre-fall 2006) score here (a number between 0 and 4)
 
Your old score converted to the new (fall 2006 and later) scale is:

Old converted to new scale =
  ( [old score] * ([new range ] / [old range]) ) + [difference in starting points] 
   = ([old score] * 5 / 4 ) + 1
   = ([old score] * 1.25 ) + 1

For individual responses         
Old Old #  * 5/4  plus 1  = Old converted to new
F 0 0.00 1.00 1.00  
D 1 1.25 1.00 2.25  
C 2 2.50 1.00 3.50  
B 3 3.75 1.00 4.75  
A 4 5.00 1.00 6.00

1.20 1.50 1.00 2.50  
2.00 2.50 1.00 3.50

3.70 4.63 1.00 5.63  
4.00 5.00 1.00 6.00  

We don't recommend converting new scores to the old scale, but if you want to do this try:
New converted to old = (New - 1) / 1.25
