Because the demand for subscores is ever increasing, this study examined two different approaches for equating subscores: (a) equating a subscore on the new form to the same subscore in the old form using internal common items as the anchor to conduct the equating, and (b) equating a subscore on the new form to the same subscore in the old form using equated total scores as the anchor to conduct the equating.
