Reasoning And Comprehension Evaluation (RACE)


Instructions

Guidelines for Test-Taking:

Free Automatic Scoring

Note: The RACE is currently in the validation phase. As a result, scores are provisional and subject to refinement based on ongoing data analysis. We recommend keeping track of your participation number provided after submitting your answers. This number will be essential for any future inquiries, should you wish to discuss score adjustments or request a professional score report with detailed analysis.

Upon completion, the RACE automatically calculates a standard score range and provides you with a unique participation number.

We will soon implement a feature enabling automatic retrieval of scores based on your participation number. This enhancement aims to provide you with easy access to your test results and facilitate seamless follow-up on score adjustments or detailed analyses.

Data Collection and Accuracy

Maintaining the integrity and privacy of your data is our utmost priority, especially if you consider obtaining a professional manual correction post-assessment. Our data collection process is in strict compliance with the American Psychological Association's (APA) guidelines from 2017, ensuring that your information is handled with the highest level of confidentiality. While participation is entirely at your discretion, and you may opt out at any time without consequences, providing accurate data is crucial. Should you request a manual review of your results, the precision of the data you submit enhances the quality of the insights you receive. We highly value and encourage you to share previous scores from standardized tests such as the ACT, AFQT, GRE, SAT, or WAIS, as this contributes to the depth of our statistical analysis and the personalization of your manual correction.

Reasoning And Comprehension Evaluation (RACE)

RACE Examples

Instructions:

  • Review each statement carefully, analyzing the connections among the presented words or concepts.
  • For each scenario, you will have a list of words or concepts in random order. Your objective is to logically rearrange these options, ranking them from the most to the least relevant in relation to the scenario.
  • Base your ordering on the logical or conceptual relationships among the words, rather than on their dictionary definitions.
  • These examples are designed to familiarize you with the test's format and the type of analytical thinking required.

This is something you use to cut paper.

BRUSH KNIFE CAR CHAIR SCISSORS

Correct Order:

SCISSORS KNIFE BRUSH CHAIR CAR

Explanation:

  • SCISSORS: Placed first because they are specifically designed for cutting paper, making them the most relevant and suitable tool compared to the others.
  • KNIFE: Next, as it can also cut paper, but is generally less safe and precise than scissors for this purpose. It's more relevant than the remaining options but less ideal than scissors.
  • BRUSH: Positioned after the knife because, while it is a hand-held tool like scissors and knives, it's not used for cutting. It's more closely related to the concept of hand tools than furniture (chair) or vehicles (car).
  • CHAIR: Comes before the car as, although it's unrelated to cutting, it's a common object found indoors like scissors, knives, and brushes, as opposed to a car which is typically outdoors.
  • CAR: The least relevant, placed last because it's completely unrelated to cutting tools or indoor objects. It's a mode of transportation, making it the farthest in context from the intended use of cutting paper.

In a city park, you observe different birds. Some are perched quietly, while others are frequently flying around.

GATHERING NEST MATERIALS NESTING SEARCHING FOR FOOD MIGRATING WATCHING FOR PREDATORS

Correct Order:

SEARCHING FOR FOOD GATHERING NEST MATERIALS NESTING WATCHING FOR PREDATORS MIGRATING

Explanation:

  • SEARCHING FOR FOOD: This is the most likely reason for birds frequently flying around, as they often engage in this activity during the day.
  • GATHERING NEST MATERIALS: Birds in flight might also be collecting materials for their nests. This activity is essential, especially during nesting seasons.
  • NESTING: Perched birds are likely nesting or resting. Nesting is a crucial activity but may be less observable compared to birds in active search.
  • WATCHING FOR PREDATORS: Perched birds might be staying still to watch for predators, a common behavior for ensuring safety.
  • MIGRATING: While migration is important for birds, it's less relevant in the context of a city park setting, where birds are more likely to be engaging in daily activities rather than migrating.
