LSAT moving to computer test?
« on: March 24, 2008, 06:41:11 PM »
What do you think the odds are that the LSAT will be moving from a paper-based test to the computer?

How long do you think if ever will it take for the LSAT to be given on a computer like the MCAT?

My understanding is that 2004 was the goal. Now it's not being seriously considered for any time in the next five years.
I have courted the fire for a very long time, and many sparks have flown in the past, but [this post] speaks, finally, the language of the flame itself.

Do you think it will change the dynamic of the test? 

How will they be so anal-retentive about the rules of the exam if everyone is on a computer?

There are several good papers on this topic on lsacnet.org
