What is an "Earned Level"™?
Your Earned Level (EL) is a number between 0 and 10 that indicates your level of proficiency on Adapt practice exams. Your EL adjusts based on the score you earn on Adapt practice exams. There are two thresholds: low and high. If your score is less than the low threshold, your EL will decrease. If your score is above the higher threshold, your EL will increase. If your score is between the low and high thresholds, your EL will not change.
Given the parameters an exam must abide by, sometimes the difficulty of the exam is slightly easier or harder than the intended setting. When such a deviation happens, the thresholds will adjust accordingly. For example, if the exam turned out more difficult than intended, the high threshold will be adjusted down to compensate.
Only non-custom Adapt practice exams count toward your EL. Quizzes and custom exams do not. In addition, Adapt will not count an exam toward your EL if more than 25% of the questions on the exam are unanswered.
