Hey All! Been taking the Knewton course, and getting clobbered by their scoring, Quant rightfully so, but Verbal no idea why.

I got the first 17 verbal correct on their CAT, and ended up getting 35 out of the 41 correct, with the last 6 in a row also being correct, and still ended up with a scaled 35 in verbal :(

I understand that the algorithm penalizes more for getting easy ones right / wrong, but I don't understand how I was getting any easy questions at all if I had gotten the first 17 correct! Any input would be highly appreciated.

edit: And between #1 and #26 I got only one incorrect as well...
