Q.6 How are the Sections of GRE scored?
Ans
    Verbal and Quantitative Sections
  • Your Verbal and Quantitative scores will depend on your performance on the questions given and on the number of questions answered in the time allotted.
  • Both sections are computer adaptive, meaning that the computer selects questions based on your performance on preceding questions and on the requirements of the test design. Test design factors that influence which questions are presented to you include
  1. The statistical characteristics (including difficulty level) of the questions already answered
  2. The required variety of question types
  3. The appropriate coverage of content
    Analytical Writing Section
  • The primary emphasis in scoring the Analytical Writing section is on your critical thinking and analytical writing skills rather than on grammar and mechanics.
  • You'll receive a single score for your performance on the Analytical Writing section.
  • Your essay score usually is the average of scores from two trained readers, using a 6-point holistic scale. The scale reflects the overall quality of an essay in response to the assigned task.
  • If the two assigned scores differ by more than one point on the scale, the discrepancy is adjudicated by a third GRE reader. Otherwise, the scores from the two readings of an essay are averaged and rounded up to the nearest half-point interval (e.g., 3.0, 3.5).
  • You'll receive an NS (No Score) if you do not write a response for either of the two tasks in the Analytical Writing section. If you write an essay for only one of the two tasks, you'll receive a score of zero on the task for which no response was provided.
  • During the scoring process, your essay responses on the Analytical Writing section will be reviewed by ETS essay-similarity-detection software and by experienced essay readers.
