Criterion Score

The criterion score on a test (or on multiple tests) is the score that divides test takers into categories; for example, a criterion score of 65% on an exam may separate students into two categories: those students who passed and those students who failed. Criterion scores are often used as a dependent variable for statistical analyses.
