Studycopter today launched Computer Adaptive GMAT Practice Tests to enable students to prepare for the GMAT in the most realistic way possible.
April 1, 2014 (Newswire.com) - With Studycopter's Computer Adaptive GMAT Practice Tests, students can hone their skills, timing, and confidence and ascertain how they would fare on test-day with Studycopter's 200-800 level scaled scores, as on the GMAT.
Adi Jain, Studycopter's CEO says "Studycopter's Computer Adaptive GMAT Practice Tests (CATs) use the same IRT Technology that's used on the actual GMAT, guaranteeing that students see the most realistic GMAT questions and the most accurate scores."
Other details on Studycopter's Practice Tests are listed below:
How close to the real test are these GMAT practice tests?
The GMAT Practice Tests were designed to simulate the official GMAT as closely as possible, both in terms of question quality, difficulty level, and how the computer-adaptive algorithm determines students' ability level and chooses which questions students see. The GMAT tests draw from a pool of hundreds of realistic GMAT questions, each of which is measured on multiple attributes that go far deeper than simply "easy / medium / hard." Given the adaptive nature of the practice tests, no two test instances will be exactly the same.
How are these different from hundreds of other GMAT Practice tests available Online?
The GMAT Practice tests are built on a platform that employs Item Response Theory (IRT), the same system underlying the real GMAT.
Unlike basic approaches that simply count correct and incorrect responses and then generate a score, IRT recognizes that no two GMAT questions are exactly the same. What question one receives at any given point on a test will be dictated by how well one has performed up to that point, and how one answers that question will impact her ability estimate and help determine which question is shown next. The system also takes "content balancing" into account, ensuring that a student sees a mix of question types that are representative of what will be seen on the real GMAT, all while gathering as much information about the student's ability level as possible.
With each question, a student sees a detailed analysis of her performance, time spent on the question, the question's GMAT-specific difficulty level, and the GMAT chapter and section that the question belongs to.

Who creates the questions in the Studycopter GMAT practice tests
Every question in our GMAT practice tests was written by experienced Studycopter GMAT instructors (many with 99 percentile scores on the GMAT), Nova Press' question bank (used and trusted by millions worldwide), and experts from organizations such as Manhattan GMAT Prep and Kaplan.
Test questions have been designed to measure students' higher-order thinking skills in the same way official GMAT questions do. All questions are tested with thousands of GMAT students before being used in a Studycopter GMAT practice test.
