Reese, Lynda M.; Cotter, Ruth Anne
This report provides a description of the item types that have appeared on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) from the first administration of the test in February 1948 through 1994. Also included is information related to the General Background and Writing tests that were administered for some time in an afternoon session, but for which separate scores were reported. Test books, test analysis reports, validity studies, research reports, LSAT Information Books, and LSAT Documentation in the Educational Testing Service archives were used as source materials. The report begins with an overview of how the LSAT has evolved, and then information on each item type is presented at a more detailed level. The report describes 21 operational item types used over the years and 7 experimental item types. An appendix contains an example of each item type with an answer key. (Contains 2 tables and 23 references.) (SLD)
