Wondering how your raw test scores turn into domain scores and your C-Score? It goes a little something like this:
You play a challenge and get some raw test scores—for example, 60 in Feature Match and 6 in Digit Span.
Those scores are compared to a database and put on a common scale, so they can be compared to each other. For example, a 60 in Feature Match is not 10 times better than a 6 in Digit Span—the 60 is actually much worse compared to the database average, which is captured by putting the scores on the same scale.
These new scores contribute a certain amount to each domain score. For example, Feature Match contributes most to reasoning, but also a bit to short-term memory and verbal ability.
When the contributions from all tests have been counted, you have three domain scores: a reasoning score, a short-term memory score, and a verbal ability score. You can view these on your Brain Report or trend graphs at any time.
Domain scores are multiplied to produce your C-Score. Thus, the C-Score is a quick summary of your cognitive performance in all three domains. Learn more about how the C-Score is calculated here.
Percentile scores are also available, comparing your scores to the BrainLabs community. Read more about who you are being compared to here.
That's all there is to it: the C-Score is calculated from domain scores, which are calculated from test scores.
