Do we get to keep the tests on test day?

Postby Albatross » Thu Jun 03, 2010 11:06 pm

I'd like to determine if I made any mistakes on test day before three weeks.

Nope. you just have to try and remember. Then you come here and there will be about a million threads trying to talk about specific questions. Then mods will delete all those threads because you are not allowed to talk about specific questions. Then someone will start a chat room and you go there to talk about questions. Then you can sort of see what the general consensus is about certain questions, except you'll barely remember any of them by then.

How would they keep you from telling all the answers to your friend in Alaska or Hawaii?

This should pretty much cover it.

I think too highly of myself to potentially allow someone to score better than me on my accord.

Somehow I guessed that would be the answer.

What I don't get is why it takes so long to get our scores. When I took the GRE I swear we got our scores for the multiple choice sections THAT DAY. Then we had to wait for the essay section to be scored obviously.

What takes three weeks? Just run it through the damn scantron already!!

But I like how they keep it old school, administering the test and scoring it pretty much exactly like they did it 20 years ago, and not much different from how they did it back in the 70's-80's. All those computer-based, difficulty-adjusted tests are Satan's recruiting tools, as far as I'm concerned.

I've never actually seen this guy before (always just heard his songs on "flash back 80's" on the radio). I expected a barry white look a like - this guy in the video does not match the voice!

Yea, he's pretty good. Though this guy is better.

No- what are the rules on discussing questions and answers on Top-Law-Schools?
When can people start talking about it on this website?
I was able to predict the # of questions I got wrong on the SAT exactly from talking to people about it way back..

I believer they delay you receiving your scores for two reasons. One is to give them a chance to check, address, and resolve and anomalies. The other is that they need to make sure that the results for each question match their statistical targets. I believe that if too many people get a question wrong or right, they drop it. This is evident in past PTs where there are un-scored Q's.

Also, isn't it based on a curve? Or am I just stuck in the law school vortex?

Yes, but the curve is pre-determined I believe.

Whoa.. Looks like they are becoming pretty serious about it.. I remember seeing nearly all of the provided examples on TLS right after the test in the past. I wonder if lsac had anything to do with it. Is there a thread on this?

If I had to guess, I would say that it has something to do with the copyright on each question.

Is that really why some PTs have questions dropped? I thought it was because it was determined to have some flaw or ambiguity. And yes, as you said, the "curve" has already been determined.

The two are likely to be closely related. If people do not score as expected, it's probably because the question is flawed.
