Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
now only available as a computer-adaptive test.
This is how it works: instead of having a pre-determined
mixture of easy, medium, and hard questions,
the computer will select questions for you based
on how well you are doing. The first question
will be of medium difficulty; if you get it
right, the second question will be selected
from a large group of questions that are a little
harder; if you get the first question wrong,
the second will be a little easier. The result
is that the test automatically adjusts to your
skill level. The Tough questions have more credit
than easier ones.
You can still earn a very high score even if
you answer several questions incorrectly. Correct
answers to Harder questions leads to large score
as compared to easier questions. This means
to Get large score more difficult questions
has to be answered.
