Misconduct When ETS or test center administrators find that there is misconduct in connection with a test, the test taker may be dismissed from the test center or ETS may decline to score the test or may cancel the test score. Misconduct includes, but is not limited to, noncompliance with the “Test Center Procedures and Regulations” listed on pages 14 – 16. Test takers whose scores are canceled will forfeit their test fees and must pay to take the entire GRE test again at a future administration. No record of score cancellations, or the reason for cancellation, will appear on future score reports sent to colleges, universities and/or fellowship sponsors. Score Reporting (continued) Invalid Scores ETS may also cancel scores if, in its judgment, there is substant evidence that they are invalid for any other reason. Substantial evidence means evidence that is sufficient to persuade a reason person; the substantial evidence standard is lower (i.e., requires less proof) than the reasonable doubt, clear and convincing, and preponderance of the evidence standards. Evidence of invalid s may include, without limitation, discrepant handwriting, unusua answer patterns and inconsistent performance on different part the test.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
