Weight of Essay Point Relative to MC Question
Check w/ ETS to see if I've calculated this correctly
        2.04         1.0870 2002 Specific (only 69 questions)
        2.07         1.0714 "Normal" 70 Question Test
This calcuation is true "at the margin". Technically, each essay point is worth 2.59 m/c questions (70/27)
I defined m/c question as worth 1.25 points. (The difference between "right" or "wrong", no "blank/skipped" possible)

Weight of Essay Point Relative to MC Question
Check w/ ETS to see if I've calculated this correctly
        2.07         1.0714 2002 Specific (only 69 questions)
        2.07         1.0714 "Normal" 70 Question Test
This calcuation is true "at the margin". Technically, each essay point is worth 2.59 m/c questions (70/27)
I defined m/c question as worth 1.25 points. (The difference between "right" or "wrong", no "blank/skipped" possible)

                                                                      Essay Weight makes the 27 possible essay points "fit" into 60 possible p
