The Graduate Record Examination Program.
Winterbottom, John A.
ADE Bulletin, n20 p43-49 Jan 69
The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) program is described in this article from the standpoint of the policy-making and administrative arrangement which provide the context within which the Advanced Literature and 22 other similar tests exist. The development and dissemination of the Advanced Tests is outlined. A discussion of policy-making and control covers the functions of the recently founded GRE Board and its relationship to the Educational Testing Service. Considerable attention is devoted to such achievements of the GRE Board as (1) the separation of the Institutional Testing Program from the National Program for Graduate School Selection, (2) improving communication between graduate education and the GRE program, (3) providing better interpretive aids for test scores and evidences of test validity, and (4) an interest in research.
