Figuring out the experimental section

Postby rklafehn » Mon Jun 07, 2010 6:44 pm

The RC with a dual passage concerning bees was scored.
The LG with mulch/stones was scored.
LR scored??

I went LR LG LR RC LR

I had the same setup. For the first LR, I thought that it was experimental because I had a concerning pattern in my answers (I had a ton of D and E and almost no A or B). But then when I completed the second LR I thought it was experimental because it was crazy easy. I'm sure the first one is scored and I just bombed it...

Were any of the LRs 26? Both of mine were 25.

That sucks, because I can't really answer your question without breaking forum rules. I will say this though: I suspected that my first LR was experimental until I had another RC. They had some strange question types this time around. Don't let that throw you off. The strange one may have been real.

trying like crazy to remember any LR questions (I had 3 LR too) unfortunately drawing a blank. I have suspicions/hopes that the first one might have been experimental

I had a lot of D's and E's on my last one as well... so many so that it made me go back and re-check. (Underground Rockband) but that was in the last section, so I'm pretty sure that one was real, so if you had it in your first section, it was real.

I hope the first one was too...it was much harder than the second

Someone (mod?) said determining the experimental was legit. Does this mean we can trade vague question subjects to figure it out?

Does anyone remember questions? I am drawing a blank, but maybe if we can start remembering topics it will help?

Oh! What about the question with all the answers being about gorillas, apes, horses, etc?

Parallel reasoning I think it was...

I had "underground rockband" in my fifth section so I know that that was scored (and that question was tough!)

I think we just cant get specific about answer choices and such

I don't remember anything about horses and gorillas. what about advanced heart attack treatments (early question) I think in #2 of my 3 LR sections

I love underground music and IMO, you cant determine a bands success by record sales and such but i dont write for rolling stone so what do i know.

Yep. Had to narrow down options and guess between two on that one.

As long as you aren't getting very specific (as in discussing the whole stimulus) and not trying to talk about answer choices you should be fine. Any mod reading this feel free to clarify further.

I guess there is more than one experimental LR section?. Someone in the other thread said one of theirs had 26 questions. I'm fairly sure mine all had 25. unless i made a fantastically awful bubbling error

same sequence, i remember the first LR is easier becaues I finished first 15 questions in 15 minutes. And the second LR is more difficult because I remember the first one is an agree/disagree and it's a long stimulus.

LR scored??

I went LR LG LR RC LR

Pretty sure my test had no random mammals on it.

That means that my first LR was scored? B/c I had the gorillas and apes 2nd.

I had two AR/LG sections, so for sure one of those was the experimental. Though I am not sure which one it was! One had something to do with mulch and the other had something to do with new/used cd's? Though they very well could have been in the same section, I can't remember!

I had an LR section with ALOT of D's and E's, so that wasn't experimental. In the RC I had there was something about bees. I can't remember the other LR section, but it didn't strike me as overly hard!

Mine was LG-LR-LG-LR-RC

(Hope that's not too specific!!)
