Specifically,
1.what is the difference between "question difficulty" and "Psg/Game/S difficulty"?
2. what exactly is Psg/Game/S difficulty?
3. what does "priority" refer to? Is it the priority for what the individual text taker should be studying based on one's performance or is it a priority question type for the LSAT?

I have answered your questions in order below:

1. what is the difference between "question difficulty" and "Psg/Game/S difficulty"?
The question difficulty is referring to the difficulty of the individual questions within the section itself. The “Passage” or “Game” or “Section” difficulty is an average of the individual questions’ difficulty that make up the “Passage” or “Game” or “Section.”

2. what exactly is Psg/Game/S difficulty?
As stated above, the “Passage” or “Game” or “Section” difficulty is an average of the individual questions’ difficulty that make up the “Passage” or “Game” or “Section.”

3. what does "priority" refer to? Is it the priority for what the individual text taker should be studying based on one's performance or is it a priority question type for the LSAT?
Priority is a measure of what you need to focus on. It is calculated by weighting expected accuracy with expected number of questions. The higher the priority for a question type, the more you need to focus on that question type.
So for example, if your accuracy is very low for “Misc” questions and there are a lot of “Misc” questions, then it will receive high priority: you should focus on that question type. This is based on your accuracy.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you for the explanation. Very helpful! As a suggestion, it would be good if you would include the description of categories in the problem set answer key in your resources so that people would be able to refer to it as needed.

Hi there,

Great! If you are looking for the description of each question type, you can check the description by hovering your cursor on each question tag.

See example below:

In this example, "RecS" means "Recognition - What is stated".

Please let me know if that helped!
