To answer your question, it allows them flexibility to change it every year, but not the year for which they have already set the Scaled Score/Percentile relationship for (see above).
Ehhh your explanation isn't that convincing.
Right, so looking at that exact chart, if you score a 176 on an exam between June 2014 to February 2015 (future tests) your percentile will be 99.7, meaning that you did better than 99.7% of people who took the test from 2011 to 2014.
And SORRY GUYS!!! I'll stop derailing the thread.... I'm really looking forward to drilling parallel/flaw this weekend. I honestly cannot wait to get to the library (it's been two weeks. ugh.)
So last year there was an article in the WSJ about how doctors' growth charts are outdated and because of that, some 20 percent of kids are now in the 95th percentile of weight that is defined by those charts.
For the same reason, it is possible for 20 percent of people to take the September LSAT and receive a 95th percentile score. Because, like SMCC said, it's based on past information.
I decided to take a one-day study break today, so this tangent was perfectly timed.
