This percent below information was used for score reports during the 2008-09 testing year. BIOLOGY TEST PRACTICE BOOK 67 Evaluating Your Performance Now that you have scored your test, you may wish to compare your performance with the performance of others who took this test. Both the worksheet on page 66 and the tables on page 67 use performance data from GRE Biology Test examinees. The data in the worksheet on page 66 are based on the performance of a sample of the examinees who took this test in December 2006. This sample was selected to represent the total population of GRE Biology Test examinees tested between July 2004 and June 2007. The numbers in the column labeled “P+” on the worksheet indicate the percentages of examinees in this sample who answered each question correctly. You may use these numbers as a guide for evaluating your performance on each test question. The first table on page 67 contains, for each scaled score, the percentage of examinees tested between July 2004 and June 2007 who received lower scores. Interpretive data based on the scores earned by examinees tested in this three-year period will be used by admissions officers in the 2008-09 testing year. These percentages appear in the score conversion table in a column to the right of the scaled scores. For example, in the percentage column opposite the scaled score of 670 is the number 56. This means that 56 percent of the GRE Biology Test examinees tested between July 2004 and June 2007 scored lower than 670. To compare yourself with this population, look at the percentage next to the scaled score you earned on the practice test. Your three subscores show your relative strengths or weaknesses in the three subfield areas of the GRE Biology Test. The raw subscores are scaled in such a way that the...
