Are these really the average scores for the Psych GRE? 577 at Master's level and 633 at the doctoral level.

I'm taking the psych subject exam on Saturday and I came across this statement, "The average score on Psychology subject test is 577 at Master's level and 633 at Doctoral level." These seem soooo low. I pulled this from Wikipedia which pulled this from the Psi Chi website. Everywhere I've read is that 650 is the minimum score that might get you into a decent program, however 700 is really what you should be shooting for.
I'm going for a masters. I scored 610 on my first practice exam without any real psychology experience or test preparation. I'm assuming I should do pretty well after putting in some study time.
These stats are making me fell pretty good but I just am having trouble believing them. I suppose there are a ton of shoddy and easy to enter programs and their grads out there pulling down the scores. Am I misunderstanding something?
What do you guys think or have found from experience?
