ETS Research Report Series, Dec 2018
Educational Testing Service (ETS), working with 21 U.S. law schools, evaluated the predictive validity of the GRE® General Test using a sample of 1,587 current and graduated law students. Results indicated that the GRE is a strong, generalizably valid predictor of first-year law school grades and that it provides useful information even when undergraduate grade point average already is available to predict those grades. This report also reviews the reliability of the GRE General Test that had been determined in prior research.
