The Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) Board announced the introduction of two new question types as of November. The new question types can appear in the Verbal Reasoning or Quantitative Reasoning sections of the computer-based GRE General Test.
“The new Verbal question type is a text completion question that requires the test taker to fill in two or three blanks within a passage from separate multiple-choice lists. Currently, the Verbal section contains text completion questions that require test takers to fill in one blank within a passage from a single multiple-choice list. The new Quantitative question type will be a numeric entry question that requires test takers to type their answer as a number in a box, or as a fraction in two boxes. Test takers can review sample questions and additional information about the new question types on the GRE website.”
