Incorrect answers in 2017 version

by ahmadnassar » Sun Sep 18, 2016 12:57 pm
Just downloaded the error log and when I wanted to use it for my diagnostic I noticed that the "Correct Answers" column was different from the OG answer key for a bunch of the questions. Is there an updated version with the correct answers?

Are you referring to the Improvement Chart? If so, the answer key should be right (it was checked by several people).

That said, the Improvement Chart does cover the diagnostic test that begins on page 20 of the OG2017

Yup, I'm referring to the Improvement Chart.

The answers to the first 3 questions (1-3) should be A, D, E according to page 44 of the 2017 OG. Additionally, question 4 is an algebra problem and not an arithmetic problem (which is what the Chart has it classified as). Am I looking at the wrong version of the OG? Or am I just using the Chart incorrectly?

You are using the Chart incorrectly.
The Improvement Chart does cover the diagnostic test that begins on page 20 of the OG2017

It covers all of the other 900 questions though.

Cheers,
