Question

I am trying to enter grades for a test. If the passing standard
for our state testing is a 59- how do I adjust my current grading
practices? In other words when I administer a test how can I
adjust it to where the normal passing rate of 70 actually equals a
59?
I thank you in advance for your help.

What is the "normal passing rate" and why is it 70 (%)? If I understand your question I
think you would have to multiply all the scores by 1.186.
