Update: Practice Test changes in Praxis and LSAT

Updated

What’s changing?

In an effort to simplify the learning experience for our LSAT and Praxis students, we’ll be making some changes to the LSAT and Praxis practice experiences beginning in August 2021. Specifically: 

  1. We are adding a separate tab for practice tests: the Full tests tab. Now, instead of only being able to complete a practice test at the end of a series of stages, you will be able to select which practice test you want to take and when.
  2. We are removing practice tests from the practice plan. Before, your practice plan was structured using a combination of practice tests and stages. Now, the practice tests will be done separately, in their own Full tests tab, in the order, and at the time of your choosing. The new practice plan will contain only stages and timed mini sections. Your progress and work within each stage will not be modified.
  3. Because of these new implementations, you may notice that your practice tests names have changed: now, all of our practice tests will follow a regular name order (Practice Test #1, Practice Test #2, Practice Test #3…) even if you removed and re-added them in your schedule.

Why are we making this change?

As part of the ongoing project to rebuild all of Khan Academy in a new coding language, we’ve been investigating areas where we can simplify the learning experience and free up time for our small team to focus on improving our most critical areas.

Part of this project involves the implementation of a unified user experience across all of our Test Prep products: SAT, LSAT, and Praxis. This will allow LSAT and Praxis Learners to benefit from some of our SAT-exclusive features and give them more control over what they practice and when. 

This flexibility will allow you to better organize your preparation. Now, instead of having to complete a practice test to continue with your practice plan, you will be able to take practice tests whenever you want. We understand that this will allow for more effective preparation, especially for adult learners with limited time available for their studies.

What about all of my Practice Test scores and schedules? 

All of your previous practice test scores and dates will remain in the experience for your reference. 

We want to end with a note shouting out to those of you who stayed committed to preparing for the LSAT or the Praxis, either in the past or during this year of 2021. We hope that your dedication was personally rewarding, and we thank you for being such an important part of the Khan Academy community.
