Revised GRE® Practice Test #1




Evaluating Your Performance


After you have taken the practice revised General Test, it is time to evaluate your performance. Because the new Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning score scales for the revised GRE General Test will not be available until November 2011, we are providing estimates of your performance on the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures based on the previous 200 to 800 GRE score scale. These estimates should give you a general idea of how you might perform on the revised GRE General Test but they are not precise predictions of your future test performance. The score ranges provided should help guide your test preparation.

Analytical Writing Measure


One way to evaluate your performance on the Issue and Argument topics you answered on the practice test is to compare your essay responses to the scored sample essay responses for these topics and review the reader commentary for these sample essay responses. Scored sample essay responses and reader commentary are presented in the separate document, "Analytical Writing Responses and Commentaries" (GRE Practice Test 1 Writing Responses.doc or GRE Practice Test 1 Writing Responses 18 point.pdf) for the one Issue topic and one Argument topic presented in the Analytical Writing sections of the test. The final scores on each of the two essays (Issue and Argument) are averaged and rounded up to the nearest half-point interval. A single score is reported for the Analytical Writing measure. You should review the score level descriptions in the document "Overview of the Analytical Writing Measure" (GRE Overview Writing.doc or GRE Overview Writing 18 point.pdf) to better understand the analytical writing abilities characteristic of particular score levels.

Verbal and Quantitative Measures


Correct answers to the questions in the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are in the separate answer keys documents provided with Practice Test 1. The tables below contain additional information to help you evaluate your performance on the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures. Compare your answers to the correct answers given, counting questions you answered correctly. Omitted answers or partially correct answers should be treated as incorrect. You can evaluate your performance by comparing your performance on each test question to the performance of a group of actual GRE test takers who were administered those questions at previous test administrations. In tables A1 through A4 below, there is a number to the right of each question sequence number. That number, referred to as P+, is the percent of test takers who answered the question correctly. P+ is used to gauge the relative difficulty of a test question. The higher the P+, the easier the test question. This information enables you to see how other test takers performed on each question. It can also help identify content areas in which you need more practice and review. Next, add the number of correct answers in Sections 1 and 2 to obtain your raw Verbal Reasoning score. Add the number of correct answers in Sections 3 and 4 to obtain your raw Quantitative Reasoning score. Once you have calculated your raw scores, refer to the score conversion table (Table B) to find the scaled score ranges corresponding to your raw scores on both the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures. These score ranges are based on the previous 200–800 GRE General Test reporting scales. A range of scores on the previous score scale is provided as an estimate because the new score scale will not be available until November 2011. Table C allows you to compare your scaled score ranges with the scores of others who have taken the General Test. The table provides for each scaled score the percent of test takers who earned lower scores (percentile rank). To evaluate the level of your performance on the practice test, find the percentile ranks associated with the scale scores in your score range. These percentile ranks are only meant to provide you with a general indication of your performance and may not be identical to the percentile ranks for the GRE revised General Test that will be published in November 2011.
