The Computer-Based Test is an Adaptive Test Questions on computer-adaptive tests are customized for each test taker based on his/her individual perfor mance. The Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning sections of the computerbased GRE General Test are dynamically generated based on a test taker¶s answers to previous questions. This test design provides precise infor mation about each candidate¶s abilities using fewer test questions than traditional paper-based tests. At the start of the test, the test taker is presented with test questions of middle difficulty. As he or she answers each question, the computer scores it and uses that infor mation, as well as his or her responses to preceding questions and infor mation about the test design, to deter mine the next question. As long as the test taker answers correctly, he or she will typically be given questions of increased difficulty. When the test taker responds incorrectly, he or she will typically be given less difficult questions. Because the computer scores each question before selecting the next one, the test taker must answer each question when it is presented. For this reason, once the test taker answers a question and moves on to another, he or she cannot go back and change his or her answer. The computer has already incorporated both the test taker¶s answer and the requirements of the test design into its selection of the next question. GRE® General Test Scores The GRE General Test reports scores for 3 skill areas: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing.
