ABOUT THE TEST
The Graduate Record Examination in Psychology is given three
times a year by Educational Testing Service under policies set by the Graduate Record Examinations Board, an independent board affiliated with the Association of Graduate Schools and the Council of Graduate Schools. Graduate school applicants submit GRE test results together with their undergraduate records as part of a highly competitive admissions.
The questions for the test are written by a committee of specialists who are selected from various undergraduate and graduate faculties. The test consists of approximately 215 multiple-choice questions that are designed to measure a student's knowledge and understanding of principles, theories, and concepts in the broad field of psychology. The questions are taken from the courses of study most commonly offered in an undergraduate psychology curriculum.
The test is divided into three content areas. Social or social science-oriented (about 43% of the test) questions are concerned with developmental, personality, abnormal, clinical, and social psychology. Experimental or natural science-oriented (about 40% of the test) questions are concerned with sensation, physiology, learning, cognition, and perception. General (about 17% of the test) questions draw on your knowledge of historical applied psychology as well as measurement, statistics, and research designs.
There are three separate scores:
- A total score based on all questions.
- A subscore for social psychology questions only.
- A subscore for experimental psychology questions only.
The questions from which the subscores are calculated are not labeled separately and are distributed throughout the entire test.
