Are you resetting the scores, or setting them all to a certain score?
Try putting desired contacts into a salesforce campaign, you can do that from the contacts report.
Then in Marketo, use "member of SFDC campaign" as the smart list, then the flow step is set score to XX or change score by XX.
We are setting them all to a specific score that varies with each individual. So a campaign would be onerous to set up. Thanks though!

Oh I see.
So other options would be the marketo dataloader tool, which you can find in LaunchPoint.
Or you can create another field in Salesforce and set that to the correct score.
And then run a campaign in Marketo that says if Lead score is not equal to new lead score then set lead score as new lead score. You can then use that orphaned field for quick trouble shooting later.
Just ideas, I'm sure others have additional ways this can be done. Good luck!
Excellent idea to use the temp field in SFDC and then copy the value, Darrell! Thank you!

A couple of versions ago, Marketo fixed what they called a bug that authorized SFDC to update score fields. Since then, Score fields can no longer be updated by SFDC. Many people used this possibility to compute behavior + demographic and send it back to Marketo. This no longer works.
So what we are doing now is creating a new formula field in SFDC, which value is set to demo + behavior. This field is synch'ed as an INTEGER field in Marketo (do not make it a score), then we set up a smart campaign that copies any value change of that field to the main score field.
Now that you mention it, I remember reading about this on the Community on a thread or threads where you were a participant. I had completely forgotten about it.
Also, I'll inform Marketo Support.
