To use this table, first calculate the Sum of Scaled Scores for the appropriate subtest combinations by adding the scaled scores for those subtests.  Multiply this sum by the number in the corresponding “Multiplier” column, and then add the number in the “Additive” column to this result. The result is a Standard Score obtained from the subtest substitution combination.
