it first appeared 2 days ago
as you might see, the number of attempts is a non-integer, which clearly is something that can't be

Thank you for reporting - we will look into it ASAP. However, i am wondering that it is just the scale that got "adjusted" specifically for you.
In any case, I will ask the programmers... which will, as always, have a perfectly reasonable explanation why it looks crazy... oh man.

Thank you for posting!

Something is also wrong with the filter by Difficulty option in Verbal. It only works when its set to All.

again workbook
answered 3 DS questions incorrectly, and my Q score dropped 4 points. Answered all 4 SC questions correctly, my V estimated score remained the same

Thank you for the report (i originally misread and thought you said you answered 3 DS correctly and your score dropped)... glad it is working properly...
One note, timers less than 15 seconds are not included in your score calculation.

Thanks
BB

well, it might be true, but I am not that good to answer in less than 15 seconds 700 lvl questions :D

anyways, it is some kind of strange to see a drop when not answering correctly, and nothing when answering correctly

one more thing I noticed with the workbook...
3AM central US - shows for ex. 40Q 31V. - questions to answer - shows that some of the questions were already attempted.
8AM central US - shows 41Q 31V - different questions, none attempted before.

We refresh the questions overnight... we generate a new set of personalized questions or do you mean to say that we do it twice?
Basically every day we generate a new set of questions for you to attempt the day after and email them to you.

P.S. I remember the good old 3 AM days. I can't do it anymore.

I really don't get how the workbook is working..
so first problem Q- I answer correctly a bunch of 700 lvl questions - score is still stuck at 39
workbook shows 4 CR questions, out of which 1 I have already answered before - I answer all 3 correctly -> my score drops 1 point.

moreover, the questions again were refreshed twice. 3AM in the morning - I saw a bunch of questions, all good.
8 AM - I'm looking that out of 4 questions on SC, 3 are already answered before.

+
score 32 on verbal:
CR gives 600-700 lvl questions
SC - 700 lvl questions
