Question Classification

Postby CottonHarvest » Mon Mar 27, 2017 2:30 pm

Is there a spreadsheet that lists how all the main companies--7sage, PS, BP, Manhattan, and the Trainer--classify different LR question types and where the overlap or differences are?

I'm not sure about other companies or if there's some master list somewhere, but I can speak to Blueprint's LR classification method. Blueprint breaks LR down into three question families, based on the basic task you're being asked to do and based on what (if anything) you're told to take as true by the question stem.

BP's three question families are called Implication (in which you're asked to draw some sort of inference from the statements above the question stem), Characterization (in which you're asked to describe an argument in some way, such as how it reasons or what is flawed in its reasoning), and Operation (in which you're asked to perform some sort of operation on a given argument, such as strengthening or weakening it). Beyond that, BP breaks apart the question families into more specific question types to give you further guidelines on how to approach a given question.
