This has crossed my mind a time or two. I'm hoping a couple of the RC questions broke their scale.
Does anyone know the protocol on removing questions from scoring? You think if like 90% of test takers miss it they remove it?
If 90% of test takers missed it, it might be the question that divided the 170+ scores from the rest.
If 99.9% of test takers missed it, it might be question that divided the 179's from the 180's.
I bet a lot of people have to miss it for it to throw off their scale.
My understanding is that they know the frequency for each answer choice for each question. So, I would guess unless there is a significant deviation, a question isn't getting dropped. However, if they predict 80% of takers will pick C, but only 2% do, and 98% pick E, then that might be a consideration.
That would make sense. I've only seen maybe one or two redacted questions in practice tests, so they clearly don't eliminate questions from scoring very often. It's just wishful thinking on la dia de verde...

Yeah, here's to hoping, but realistically, it won't.
