Do the examiners consider typos when grading the MEE and MPT? When typing, I tend to misspell a lot of words.

But in reality too many typos may piss off your grader. Most exam programs have a spell check you can use the last three minutes of an essay or MPT.

What is included in Examplify depends on your jurisdiction. There is a spell check, it did not appear on my test in Mississippi. From what I heard about their spell check, it's a steaming pile of junk.

Spelling isn't graded specifically, but it can hurt you. For example, if you make reference that Hillary Clinton is a dried up old cankled dragon, it will hurt your score with some graders, and might help with others. It's not on the grading sheet, but let's face it, this is a very subjective event. Spelling is part of the overall presentation of lawerly writing. They may downgrade your, they may not care.

This is why I don't discuss or practice for essays, they are a casino for smooth talking bar coaches to take your money. You only have your fate in your hands on the MBE, everything else is chance.

Wow, you DID take special ed. Gotcha. But don’t worry, I’m autistic and repeat myself so if I sound stupid, I actually am. That’s why I fetch paper as a doc review slave. Fear me.

If you mix up words meaning it might, otherwise I wouldn't worry about it. Can they tell what you meant? If so, its ok.
Does it look like you meant something else? If so, expect issues.

Actually, there's been plenty of studies regarding subjective scoring and the essays. For example, California conducts three calibration sessions where the graders gather and go over the standards and grading rubric, then they all grade the same essay. Follow up studies have shown that this works, but only for a time, and then grades vary by over 20%. If this is so, think about how subjective the grading can be where, as is the case in most states, the graders only calibrate once. You can call that a "fools rant" all you want, Einstein, the numbers don't lie.
