especially verbal one..
I have just finished the Verbal CAT, and I got 5 RC passages!!!!!
Moreover, in the end, I was just receiving a lot of 500 lvl questions, one after another. how come that when I answer correctly a bunch of questions, the difficulty level does not increase?
7 questions (CR&SC) of 500 level one after another answered correctly - this is non-sense!!!
or in the middle, answered a series of question correctly, but again 500-600 level. answered 500, difficulty went up to 600 for 1 question, then again 500 lvl...

Thank you for reporting - it does not look right with the difficulty; something definitely does not add up with questions not increasing in difficulty. It also seems the system gave you a 700-level question to start with which is not right either.

thank you bb for your quick reply. I almost thought that maybe it should be that way, and that my result is as it should be. :)

We are gearing up for an upgrade of the Verbal Test scoring algorithm and supposed to deploy it within a few days ... I am wondering if that may have something to do? We were not supposed to have anything done today though.... very odd case indeed. It is thanksgiving here so I am unlikely to get many answers right away :(

by the way, I have noticed that workbook doesn't show accurate information on overall score...for ex. it shows now 49Q and 25V while 2 days ago it was 49Q and 37V
the problem is that even for 49q and 25v, the score would be over 600 :)

Thank you! I will have it looked into as well.

Just wanted to check if issues with the Verbal CAT were resolved or if I should wait a while longer before giving one!

Thanks in advance!

Thank you and sorry for not following up.
Yes, the issue should not happen. It seems to be a side effect of the recent algorithm change we implemented.
Thank you for feedback and your suggestions!

THank you
