You are being compared to a sample of test takers who have taken these questions and a number of them probably had issues with verbal, and thus most likely your V score is inflated. Similarly, many here have a very high Q score, which will lower your score. Our system works based on percentiles (it determines where you fit in terms of speed of your answers and correctness and that determines your overall score). Then you are ranked in terms of percentiles, and it does favor people with more questions (not proportionately though, you can still be beated by a guy who answered only 50 questions, but we do not allow a guy who answered 10 correctly beat someone who answered 90 out of 100 if that makes sense.

I would take this as a helpful guideline, but it by no means an accurate predictor of your score since the test conditions are not simulated and you are compared to others as opposed to a gold standard of some sorts.

bb - I have some questions. Is there anyway I can customize or adjust setting to get more than 4 recommended questions per section?

I also notice that the difficulty level is not that accurate. For example, levels of difficulty - Sub 600, 600 - 700, or 700 are not true representatives of actual difficulty. There are questions in the Sub 600 level which only 50% of repsonse is correct and vice versa. On the other hand, the Question Stat- Correct and Incorrect - is only accurate after there is large number of response ( > 100 ). What I'm trying to say is that it is hard for me to find of filter questions at my level.

Lastly, which weight more important in your score estimate? accuracy or timing (faster than average response time) or difficulty level or question stat percentage correct? How do I improve my score?

So right now I'm only doing quant PS questions, however, on my profile it says I should do 10 of each to get a personalized recommendation. Will I get one even though I only do quant PS?

Hey BB, Is there any plan to integrate this with the GMAT Toolkit app? I practice a lot using the app, and it'd be great if my performance there was used to drive my personalized questions as well as GMAT Score predictor.

Right now, its not the best experience to have to login on a PC and take some questions on the forum just to get better recommendations when i've spent all day solving questions on gmat toolkit.

For last one week I have been practicing verbal mostly the questions are answered correctly (80% accuracy) but my score fell from 37 to 31? Is this an anamoly? Wonder how the GMAT score estimate thing works!

Thank you for your question. It depends on a few things including the difficulty of questions you have attempted as well as the amount of time you took to answer them.
E.g. taking 10 mins to answer a medium question is going to result in fewer "points" than answering an easier one fast, or taking 10 mins to answer a hard one....

Best Regards,
BB

Hi, not sure if that's the case with me. Just attaching the screenshot and I am mostly given the 700 level questions. But I did some very easy questions too.

Thank you for posting a screenshot!
We can definitely have someone look into it and why your score got reduced. I am curious now too, so will send a request to the Tech Team to see what they can pull up.

Thank you.

Hi,

In daily practice questions I am getting 600-700 Level Questions (45% difficulty) everyday. My accuracy rate is 83% (mixed bag of 700+ and 600-700 level questions). In my last GMAT exam, I got Q49.

However, my score is consistent since 7 days (i.e. 42). Am I seeing this deflated score because I don't use timer?

See the screenshot attached.

If I am reading it correctly, looks like your average time to respond is 0:01 seconds... which will not be recognized by the timer as a valid time, so it is being ignored and only the questions that have a long enough and realistic approach are counted/included in your score estimate. We do take time into consideration of your score and that allows us to only have 10 questions vs. 37 for Q.

You need to use the timer properly (start it when you start the question) to get accurate results.

Good luck!

A few suggestions:

1) Can we have a filter to only trusted source of questions in Personalized Daily Practice? OAs of Many questions at high difficulty level are easily refuted by Experts, substantially decreasing the score.

Might be in your algorithm to generate questions you can give some preference to trusted source questions (might be only Official) before you show problems of other sources.

2) Also, many a times one of the questions is a solved question. Can we have a filter for that as well?

I wouldn't call them hardest.
Some of them are poor quality "home brews".

Some people should not be allowed to post or there should be better moderating process of the self made questions :)

Thank you for the feedback! Yes, if a question is bizzare and wrong, it may be ranked as hardest - that's something we, moderators, need to do fix and do.
If you run into a question like that, please bring it up by either flagging it, posting a message or better, PM' ing a link to either Bunuel or I.

Thanks!

How many attempted questions(with timer) the system considers for score estimate? If I have taken 26 questions for DS, PS, CR, and SC each, does the system consider all of the 26 questions of each segment or consider only the last 6 questions of each segment for score estimate?

All questions are taken into consideration. The more questions you have in your history the more accurate is the prediction. There is a cut off however but it's based on one or two months of data so if you have taken some questions month ago they won't count.

This is amazing. Was looking forward to these changes.

At the risk of sounding too ambitious, do we have anything in the pipeline to select the source for Daily Practice Questions so that only questions from those source would pop in? :-D :-D :-D
