Flex scoring scale discrepancy

Hi there,

I've found a significant discrepancy between the scores the 7sage Flex calculator and the Powerscore Flex calculator spit out.
Powerscore link here:

A -6 gives a 170 in the 7Sage calculator for many tests, whereas the Powerscore calculator would give a -6 a 168 with the default settings.

Disclaimer: I do not subscribe to Powerscore, but I do listen to their podcast. They've claimed their scale estimations seem to be borne out by student experience, but I'm not so sure that they know this for a fact. Or maybe they have insider knowledge..
The harder scale would seem to be consistent with the fewer anecdotal reports of over-performances after the August Flex.

I understand that LSAC has not responded to requests for scale info, but does anyone have an idea which one of these tools is most accurate?

    7sage isn't even consistent with itself. If you use the Flex Score converter ( and input your PrepTest results from the results page, you'll sometimes get a different scaled score for the same raw score.

    As in, the Converter and the Results page will give you a different scaled score for the same raw score.
