It sounds really weird that you ended up at 410. But I got a question; how did you fare in the remaining questions of first 10? I mean no, 6,7,8,9 and 10.
I am getting perplexed about the scoring system of ETS, becoimg frustrated about the so called very intelligent CAT system of ETS. Yesterday I have taken a powerPREP verbal test where I scored just 410. Can you guess how much my answere were correct? You will say, "well, this test is adaptive, it depends on your earlier questions correctness". Very good. Among first ten questions seven of my answere choice were right. In totall I have got twenty out of thirty qestions correct. BUT i ended up scoring 410. My first five questions status was W,R,R,R,R.
The possibility of this low scoring may be due to the wrong answer of first question. What a ludicrous scenario! Just imagine just putting one wrong answer at the very first stage how much jeopardizing your good score. While experimenting this powerPREP i have found giving choice all the questions randomly A, B, C, D, E it shows score 300. So the difference between 2/3 correct answeres and all random choice is just 100! ETS how long you will remain numb?
What do you think about this?
