Looking up words while blind reviewing

Postby King of the North » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:24 pm

Do you look up words you don’t know when you’re blind reviewing? I’m asking mainly in the context of a question that would ask something along the lines of “which one of the following most expresses the meaning of the word ____ as used in...” and then it gives you 5 choices each of which is a single word.

I don't look it up during blind review but I do afterwards to make sure I know the meaning in case I see it again. If you look it up during blind review you're throwing off the accuracy. Blind review is supposed to tell you what you know or don't know without the timing factor not what you know or can figure out with outside help.

Just to add on to that above poster, I definitely wouldn’t look up words for that kind of question unless you didn’t know what the answer choices meant either.

If you really want to be blind reviewing, you should be looking upwards, not looking up words.
