This is great! This is a nice way to track without using excel spreadsheets which, for some reason, I can not stand. Question though, is the percentile that you give based on other users who are on the website or the actual results from the test? Just wondering.

Thanks again!

It's based on the percentiles from the actual test. This is pretty new, so unfortunately I can't really display accurate percentiles for the people who are currently taking the test, but I will get those numbers up once the sample size is large enough, if people want me to. :D Thanks for the suggestion!

I love the site. One very minor glitch that I see is when you edit the answers after you make a mistake, the old score is still displayed as your best score.

This is cool, but did you get a license from the LSAC to use answers?

well.. i tried to be careful not to use display any actual answers, only to show whether a chosen answer choice was correct. but you definitely raise a good point. i will call them on monday to make sure. thanks for heads-up! :D

I think I've fixed this issue, but you should try and check to see if it's actually fixed. Also, you can enter dates now for each entered test so that the cumulative graph plots out nicely. :D

I have an idea. When you are putting in your answers for a specific LSAT could there be a text box for notes? I usually write down what my testing conditions were, noise level, where I was when I took the test, distraction level, what I was wearing, what I had to eat that day and drink, etc.

i think i can do that.. what do you have in mind exactly? do you want the option to write physical notes yourself or would you rather have be able to 'tag' a test with some various options? maybe both?

Well I think it really depends on the test taker. I know people who don't write down any notes but just take the test and what they had problems on. I like to write down everything that might have a slight impact on my score whether it's what I ate the night before or drank that morning. I could see it going multiple ways, either a text box if it's a small demand for it or if people are really wanting it you could do maybe drop down boxes for various options and then an extra comment box but I think a text box would be more globally accepted. Just my 2cents :-)
