Evaluating Your Performance


After you have taken Practice Test #3 of the G R E® revised General Test, it is time to evaluate your performance.

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 Sample Essays and Commentaries" (GRE Practice Test 3 Writing Responses.doc or GRE Practice Test 3 Writing Responses 18 point.pdf) for the one Issue topic and one Argument topic presented in the Analytical Writing sections of this practice 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" (G R E Overview Writing.doc or G R E 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 #3. 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 G R E 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 3 and 4 to obtain your raw Verbal Reasoning score. Add the number of correct answers in Sections 5 and 6 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 scores corresponding to your raw scores on both the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures.
The percentile rank tables at www.ets.org/gre/percentile allow you to compare your scores with the scores of others who have taken the General Test. The tables provide for each 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 your scores.
