From what I understood they use it to give you evening assignments when the course actually starts. For example, if you're doing Evidence on day 1 and you were particularly bad with hearsay, it's going to dynamically update that section to tell you to do more hearsay questions that evening, or something like that. It's not the only thing they use IIRC but it's probably one of several assessments they use to populate those HW assignments. I may be remembering that wrong though.
For me it did help me see a breakdown of what I got right/wrong in each section. For some subjects I thought I just generally sucked, but it was really only particular sub-categories in that subject that I sucked at, which helped me figure out of which topics, specifically I'd need to do a better review (rather than just "I don't remember property at all").
