Background, Purpose, and Scope of the GRE Board Research Program.
Crawford, Bryce, Jr.
The GRE Board established the Research Program to investigate ways to improve the GRE and its overall operation. Approximately 30 projects have been undertaken and funded by the GRE Board; perhaps a third of these have been completed. These projects can be divided into three groups: (1) those dealing with product or process or marketing improvements--involving technical matters, such as option weighting, and direct utilization of the GRE; (2) those dealing the social problems of GRE testing--cultural, racial, and sexual bias; and (3) those dealing with basic or long-range research--such as the applicability of unusual types of statistical approaches and individual graduate student characteristics that affect success and test performance.
