Hi! I've been using PowerScore Analytics for a month and have really enjoyed it. But, I was wondering if there could be a couple of changes made specifically to Drill Sets.

Would it be possible to:

1 — Add a pause button for drills. Currently, if I need to step away from my laptop for a moment, I either let my laptop sit idle (which causes the stopwatch to run) or I have to exit my browser. It would be nice if I could just press a pause button.

2 — Provide a frame a reference for how many questions I have completed while I am drilling. Since there are many questions in one drill set, I usually set a goal of completing X in one sitting, but it is really hard to keep track of how many questions I have done when the numbers at the bottom are referring to the actual question number for the relevant PT. Having a counter in the corner (e.g. 44/87) or bracketing the bottom question panel into sets of 5 with a line would be nice.

3 — Blend together different drill sets. It would be nice to have a feature where we could mix together particular question types into one set (for example: strengthen, weaken, justify). I like the current drill sets, but I sometimes find myself not reading the question stem carefully because I know that I am working on X drill set. Also, I want to make sure that my brain retains some degree of flexibility because I know that my actual exam won't be 5 weaken questions in a row.

Sorry if I am asking for too much!

Hi ToadKing,

Glad to hear that you are enjoying the Testing and Analytics Package! Your input is valuable, and we appreciate the feedback. I have passed along your suggestions to our developers and IT department for consideration :).

As for your first suggestion: We do have a pause feature included for the full practice tests and individual sections. We are currently working on adding it to the drill sets as well, and should have it enabled there within the upcoming weeks.

Thank you again and have a great weekend!
