Research Leading to the Revision of the Format of the Graduate Record Examinations Aptitude Test in October 1981.
Wild, Cheryl L.; And Others
The research leading to the decisions to revise the Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test (GRE) (beginning in October 1981) is reviewed. The issues discussed include the format of the test (the timing of each section and the number of sections, the content of the sections--especially the analytical section), the scoring procedure for the GRE, and test disclosure/administrative procedures. Pros and cons of the various revision alternatives are given. The format and content of the test will have direct implications on which equating methodologies are feasible, so the impact of the decisions on the different equating methodologies is considered throughout the discussion. A general summary of equating options is presented. (PN)
