This led to an invitation of representatives from Harvard Law School and Yale Law School who ultimately accepted the invitation and began to draft the first administration of the LSAT exam. NYUin correspondence by memorandum, was openly unconvinced "about the usefulness of an aptitude test as a method of selecting law school students", but was open to experimenting with the idea, as were other schools that were unconvinced.
At a meeting on November 10,with representatives of law schools extending beyond the original ColumbiaHarvardand Yale representatives, the design of the LSAT was discussed. At this meeting the issue of a way to test students who came from excessively "technical" backgrounds that were deficient in the study of history and literature was discussed but ultimately rejected.
The first administration of the LSAT followed and occurred in However, in Juneit was announced that the LSAC would be increasing the number of tests from four to six and would instead be administering it in January, March, June, July, September, and November.
LSAT numbers continued to drop over the next two cycles but to a lesser degree, with February showed the first increase in test takers 1. Test composition[ edit ] The LSAT consists of five minute multiple choice sections one of which is an unscored experimental section followed by an unscored writing sample section.
Modern tests have 99— scored items in total. Several different test forms are used within an administration, each presenting the multiple choice sections in different orders, which is intended to make it difficult to cheat or to guess which is the experimental section.
Logical reasoning[ edit ] The LSAT contains two logical reasoning "LR" sections, commonly known as " arguments ", designed to test the taker's ability to dissect and analyze arguments.
LR sections each contain 24—26 questions. Complete sections contain 26—28 questions. Though no real rules govern the content of this section, the passages generally relate to law, arts and humanities, physical sciences, or social sciences.
In Juneone of the four passages was replaced with a "comparative reading" question. Parallels exist between the comparative reading question, the SAT's critical reading section, and the science section of the ACT.
One section contains four "games" falling into a number of categories including grouping, matching, and ordering of elements. Each LG section has 22—24 questions. Each game begins by outlining the premise "there are five people who might attend this afternoon's meeting" and establishing a set of conditions governing the relationships among the subjects "if Amy is present, then Bob is not present; if Cathy is present, then Dan is present The examinee is then asked to draw conclusions from the statements "What is the maximum number of people who could be present?
What makes the games challenging is that the rules do not produce a single "correct" set of relationships among all elements of the game; rather, the examinee is tested on their ability to analyze the range of possibilities embedded in a set of rules.
Individual questions often add rules or modify existing rules, requiring quick reorganization of known information. The LG section is commonly regarded by LSAT takers as the most difficult section of the test, at least at first, but it is also the section that can be most improved upon with practice.
Unscored Variable section[ edit ] The current test contains one experimental section which Law Services refers to as the "Variable section".If you have more questions about SAT scores or preparation, or you are interested in our full-service, customized SAT tutoring, head over to CollegeVine’s SAT Tutoring Program, where the brightest and most qualified tutors in the industry guide students to an average score increase of points.
