LSAC Analytical Reasoning (AR) Field Study

LSAC will be offering an LSAC Analytical Reasoning (AR) Field Study on December 16 and 17. This research study is a great opportunity for students to practice their AR skills under true LSAT testing conditions.

The field study will be administered in the same live, remotely proctored format as a standard LSAT, using ProctorU and LawHub. The study will consist of three sections: one section of traditional AR questions, and two sections of questions that use alternative approaches to assess AR skills.

Participants in this study will receive feedback on their performance on the traditional analytical reasoning questions, including a copy of the traditional AR section, along with the correct answers, and the answers they provided for each question.

In essence, the field study is a free opportunity for students to test their equipment and get better acquainted with the live, remotely proctored format of the LSAT in a no-risk, low-stress "dress rehearsal." No information about participant performance will be shared with schools, and participation does not count against annual or lifetime limits for taking the LSAT.

Participants in the December study will also receive their choice of one of the following LSAC products or services: One free score preview for an upcoming LSAT administration; one free Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report; free Law School Success subscription for one year; or, a free copy of LSAT SuperPrep and LSAT SuperPrep II.

Participation in the LSAC AR Field Study is open to anyone, 18 years or older, in the United States or Canada who has an account. Registration will close at 11.59 pm ET, Sunday, November 28. Students can register through their LSAC accounts.
