Transcript of GRE Presentation

Verbal reasoning questions and quantitative reasoning scores are counted equally. The student is given a raw score based on the number of correct answers.

The raw score is converted to a scaled score through equating, which accounts for variations in difficulty among test editions. Scoring Official Score Reports Include:
Contact information
Date of birth
Intended graduate program
Authorized score recipients
What score was reported
Cumulative record of scores reported within the past five years Introduction to the GRE Sample Questions Quantitative Reasoning Analytical Writing Verbal Reasoning What is it? GRE Graduate Record
Examination is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in the United States, in other English-speaking countries and for English-taught graduate and business programs world-wide. Created and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) in 1949 What does it measure? It measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. What use is the GRE to:

1) Test-takers?
2) Admissions committees?
3) ETS? Discussion Question Group Activity

In groups of 4, take your section of the GRE and examine your section, assessing if the question is:
VALID (e.g. does it measure what it claims to measure?)
RELIABLE (e.g. would the same results be obtained from instance to instance?) PRACTICAL ( e.g. does it make sense to spend time on the material?)
AUTHENTIC (e.g. is there any resemblance to the real world [‘grad school’]?)
Contemplate if there is any positive/negative washback. How can we (as ‘knowledgeable’ assessment assessors) improve the GRE? DISCUSSION QUESTIONS What are some salient issues in terms of:
HUMAN RATERS vs. COMPUTER RATERS DISCUSSION QUESTIONS GRE Graduate Records Examination Scoring GRE scores are valid for five years

Three scores are reported:
1. Verbal Reasoning: score of 130-170 in 1-point increments
2. Quantitative Reasoning: 130-170 in 1-point increments
3. Analytical Writing: 0-6 in half-point increments Verbal & Quantitative
Reasoning Score Writing Score The computer-based analytical writing section is scored by at least one human and one computer.

The paper-based analytical writing section is scored by two humans.

One score is reported for both types of test. Who cares about these scores? Princeton University looks for students who score at or above 700 for liberal arts studies and at/above 750 for science programs.

Most graduate programs do not indicate what scores they are looking for, but most resources indicate that schools look at percentiles rather than numerical scores. In 2011, more than 700.000 tests were administered More than 2500 centers in 200 countries and regions Adam Ragan
