LSAT Digital Pilot Test Opportunity for Students

Winnie Tsao – April 4th, 2017

The LSAC is looking for students interested in participating in a pilot for a digital LSAT. One of the pilot testing sites is at the University of Richmond; here is a link to the testing centers participating in this pilot test. The LSAC has announced a pilot for testing a digital version of the LSAT. They are looking for 1,000 test-takers to participate in the pilot test which will be administered at approximately 20 testing sites across the United States and Puerto Rico on Saturday, May 20th

Students who participate will not pay a testing fee, take a full 5-section test under authentic proctoring conditions with real, previously unreleased LSAC content, and maybe a writing sample (still undecided). Students will receive a tablet at the testing center (not to keep), and will not be able to use or bring their own device. For participating, students will receive a score report showing their percent correct by section and question type and a $100 gift card.

Students will not, however, receive a copy of the questions or explanations to those questions. Students will also not receive a scaled 120-180 score (presumably, the test will not be built as a scaled exam), just a percent-correct breakdown. Additionally, students will not receive that score "breakdown" until 6-weeks after the pilot administration - likely sometime in early July, and importantly, after the June LSAT administration.
