April 2014 LSAT class results

For anybody who's interested, I'm going to start posting the test results from my LSAT classes. First, here are the averages for the opening diagnostic: Test #1 Class Averages: April 8, 2014 (June 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games:  12.5 correct Logical Reasoning:  30.0 correct Reading Comprehension:  15.9 correct Total Raw Score:  58.4 correct Scaled LSAT Score:  150.9 Scaled LSAT Range: 135-166

Just 18 days later, the class had their final diagnostic:

Test #3 Class Averages:  April 26, 2014 (June 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games:  13.8 correct (+1.3) Logical Reasoning:  31.9 correct (+1.9) Reading Comprehension:  16.3 correct (+0.4) Total Raw Score:  62.0 correct (+3.6) Scaled LSAT Score:  154.0 (+3.1) Scaled LSAT Range:  134-163

In the long run, my Mid-Length Course average improvement is approximately six points. So overall, this month's average improvement of 3.1 points falls near the bottom of my historical range. Still, I'm pretty happy with three points in just 18 days. (Baby steps go a long way on the LSAT, if you just keep grinding it out.) I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Matt, from 150 to 162 (+12) Jack, from 135 to 147 (+12)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Jai, from 9 correct to 14 correct (+5) Jenny, from 12 correct to 17 correct (+5)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Jai, from 23 correct to 35 correct (+12) Jack, from 13 correct to 25 correct (+12)

Many of these students will be continuing on for another month of class, alongside a crop of brand-new students. There are six students in the class who are already over the 160 mark... my bet is that two or more of them will crack 170 in time for the June LSAT. I'll be back in early June with a report on how the new class fared.
