Is the LSAT going digital?

Is the LSAT going digital? The answer is: NOT YET.

LSAC is starting to perform field tests for writing the LSAT on a tablet. They recently had their first field test in May 2017, where they got 2,000 students (students who plan to write the LSAT in the near future) to write an LSAT on a tablet. They conducted a second digital field test in October of 2017.

They still provided scratch paper for the games and there was a stylus pen provided as well so you don’t have to rely on touching the tablet with your fingers to select your answers. For the writing section, they attached a keyboard to the tablet so you could type your answer.

LSAC says it is still undecided if this will be something they will consider implementing in the future, but for now they want to see if it would be a viable option. In my opinion, if they are running these tests it seems likely that it is only a matter of time before they make the switch. It may take a few years before they actually implement it, but it is something to keep an eye on for the future. This would likely change how you study for the test and how you road-map your questions. However, this won’t be affecting any upcoming test writers!
