New Question Types in November 2007
Beginning in November 2007, two new question types will be included in the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections of the computer-based GRE® General Test. Test takers may see ONE new Verbal question or ONE new Quantitative question or no new questions at all. No test taker will receive more than ONE new question. The new question types are part of the first phase of the General Test improvements that will be introduced gradually over time.The new question types have been through extensive field trials, and the results indicate that they are functioning as intended. The GRE Program will begin counting these question types toward examinee scores as soon as an adequate sample of data from the operational testing environment is available.
Reformatted Reading Passages in Reading Comprehension Questions in January 2008
Beginning in January 2008, the GRE Program will begin including reformatted reading passages in the Verbal Reasoning section of the computer-based GRE® General Test. Currently, reading passages accompanying Reading Comprehension questions contain line numbers that reference specific parts of the passages. Those line numbers will be replaced with highlighting when necessary in order to focus the test taker on specific information in the passage.
