So I still see that the count down is pretty ridiculous...
I can't even get through reading in English before I lose like 2 points.
Why do I need to be a photo reader to be able to get a 5x once in awhile?
Why have points if you're going to do that?
Asked this many times before... Not sure if I totally care, but it's fun,
but perhaps give it a second before counting down so us slow readers
of 900 words per minute can maybe have a chance at snagging an
extra point here and there?
Yes that's 900... Should make you think about this right? Being
most educated college students read between 200 and 300 WPM.
But either way, if you are a speed reader or not, you can't even
truly comprehend some of these questions in the time that
little count down begins, let alone answer a question.
Lets put it like this... When you look at a word or several words.
This is called a "fixation," and it takes about .25 seconds on average.
You move your eye to the next word or group of words.
This is called a "saccade," and it takes up to about .1 seconds on average.
After this is repeated once or twice.... you pause to comprehend the phrase you just looked at.
That takes roughly 0.3 to 0.5 seconds on average.
So I'm not sure if you think you have that 1 second needed to really
give us a chance, but if you do... try 2 seconds, because I rarely see it
on my end. At times I see it delay, but it's weird... You'll have it delay
on really lame super easy one word type questions... yet when I have to
read a sentence then read through several different sentences, it starts
ripping through the count down as quickly as possible.
Just some friendly FYI from what I've seen since I've been here!
