It should be easy (~ 1 day job for any developer, I could do it if I had time :p) to create a simple portal that shows some basic stats of one's performance in Quant and Verbal tests based on the sub-sections and the sub-categories.

I am sure you already have a database categorizing each question into different pool. For instance, in verbal test 1 say you have 13 CR, 13 RC and 15 SC - and say in SC each question has further categories such as parallelism, sub-verb etc etc - whatever. You just need to expose a simple portal that dumps the overall performance based on these sections and categories per test and overall (overall is more imp I guess).

Anyways, is there any chance you guys can push this feature into your GMAT club tests dashboard? It would be great to keep track of the tests performance in more details - as for Quant there nothing else I am doing for next 1 month before my final test day. Also it would be awesome to follow the verbal stats once I exhaust all other resources for verbal I have and start using GMAT club tests for verbal.

Thanks.

Yes something like this. But I guess this is only for 1 test. Do you also have similar analysis for all tests? Or are you guys planning to make it available online from the test interface?

None of the members ever expressed an interest in doing the same spreadsheet for other tests, so we never did.
I guess another question for you is - what other stats/analytics would you like to have or feel is missing? What are the big questions? Do you have a list in your mind?

Something like Manhattan GMAT's assessment tool would be great. However, I think there are multiple issues with MGMAT's tool as well, the data representation is way too staggered and needs way too much unnecessary overhead of students doing the post processing. Pretty terrible actually if you think of it from the usability point of view.

I am a very number oriented person, I like to put EVERYTHING into numbers and percentage (at work and at study) to understand the status and anything in general. So I would guess showing me ton of %age would help. But to my surprise I did not like that as much in MGMAT. This is because these number could be too confusing, esp. when you have subsections under each section. For instance, it's good to see my DS is 80-90% accurate while PS is 100%, as it tells me I need to focus on DS. Then I can drill down into DS to see where I get things wrong and I see ohh it's Inequalities and hence next time I should spend more time on Inequalities and double check my ans. However, in Quant (say my case as I explained) it is easy and no problem. But THIS IS NOT WHAT MOST OF THE STUDENTS UNDERGO. Most people have - say in my case in verbal - 40% accuracy in CR, 50% in RC and 80% in SC under test conditions (these numbers are totally different under no stress conditions). Now when I start looking at sub-sections under each of these categories and I am completely lost in the numbers it shows, don't know what to focus as all seem terribly bad. I would like to see some graphical representation of all this data in ONE SINGLE DASHBOARD (with capability to drill down into sub-sections), which would tell me what's the area I should focus on the most. Moreover I should be able to select a pool of tests which I want to run the tool against (as MGMAT currently does). If not a graph, I would at least like to know the %ages. I can do some excel work to generate my own graph.

Point is in case of GMAT tests stats - I think students would be more happy to see in stats in graphs than %ages (or even worse numbers) with the capability to drill down. Side note: the high level graphs in GMAT toolkit app are nice but not enough - frankly DOESN'T HELP MUCH!

Or I might just be a touch customer ;-)

bb, I would also like to see this feature. I came across this thread because I wanted to find out if Gmat Club tests could do something like that :)
