I was practicing reading comprehension from https://gmatofficialprep.mba.com which is the official source for GMAT
After practicing I saw under my performance summary that average difficulty level of questions was 2.27. How to interpret this ?
An average difficulty level of 2.27 would translate to how much in the actual GMAT?

So here is how it works:

1. Easy questions have a difficulty rating of 1.
2. Medium questions have a difficulty rating of 2.
3. Hard questions have a difficulty rating of 3.

2.27 means that you were doing questions that were, on average, slightly above average difficulty. It sounds very precise and z-score ish, but it is really just a very approximate and unreliable estimate of the difficulty level of the questions you did

Method used: You can also confirm this. Form 3 sets of questions, with (a) only easy questions, (b) only medium difficulty questions, and (c) only hard questions and then check the figures in the progress report. The 3 figures will be (a) 1.00, (b) 2.00, and (c) 3.00.

Hi ShardulPendharkar,

AjiteshArun gave some really useful information! You know, in addition to analyzing the stats of the official Reading Comprehension problem sets, you also could take a practice GMAT determine your current Reading Comprehension ability. Have you taken any practice exams? What is your GMAT score goal?

Feel free to reach out with further questions.
