New Reading Comprehension Forum Feature - Split Passage and Questions



We have added a new feature to the GMAT Club's RC forum today - ability to split up the passage and questions into a vertical interface (similar to how the real gmat format looks)
Do you like it? Do you hate it? Anything we can do to improve it?

Sample Passages/Topics:


The formatting is:


Code:
[box_out][box_in]Passage[/box_in][box_in]Questions[/box_in][/box_out]




Here is a screenshot:

I do not know how it 'll work here on forum but is an outstanding idea.

really, is convoluted to read and answer a question in the classic forum style. you lack of concentration

it already works fine. i do not see improvement. A rc passage with the responses in pure gmat like RC

and is simple with this tags [box_out][box_in]

Maybe the the possibility to answer the question into the box (selecting it) and then see the OA but is just to say

Do it )). awesome

It will be nice if each those multiple questions in right side allows you to choose the choice.

You mean like a timer? or?
Would you have a mock up or some rough idea how it would look/work like?

I guess he is referring to radio buttons for answer choices.

I was suggesting to have ability to choose & submit the answers (along with timer) for each of those 5-6 questions from the passage.

See below image for rough idea.

In addition to Prapon suggestion, can we have Timer at two levels. i.e.
1st level timer- This will track the time taken to solve Individual questions.
2nd level timer- This will track the time taken to Read the Passage & to solve all the questions included in the passage.
