  •  As far as I understand them... (0+ / 0-)'s not really fair to say that the test taker is punished for getting a problem correct. By getting a problem correct they no longer have to slog through the easy problems of that form and have another level of opportunity opened to them to excel while getting an answer wrong may forever close that door in that test.

    In any event, I'm pretty sure I would hate the things. I would rather have all the possible problems in front of me with some sort of weighting shown so hard problems would get, say, a weight of 5 and easy problems a weight of 1. I can then decide to start by attacking the hard problems because I know the material well enough that that's were the best "bang for the buck" is if time becomes an issue.
