For GRE a total of three scores are reported on the test:
- Verbal Reasoning score is reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments
- Quantitative Reasoning score is reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments
- Analytical Writing score is reported on a 0–6 score scale, in half-point increments
Please note a No Score (NS) will be reported on any section that is not answered at all.
For both the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures, the scores reported are based on the number of correct responses to all the questions in all the sections except for the “unscored and unidentified section” and the “identified research section.” Within each of the Verbal Reasoning or Quantitative Reasoning sections, all questions contribute equally to the final score. For each of the two measures, a raw score is computed. The raw score is the number of questions one answered correctly. The raw score is converted to a scaled score through a process known as equating.
For the Analytical Writing section, each essay is scored at at least two levels:
- A human trained reader scores the essay using a six-point holistic scale.
- A computerized program, e-rater®, developed by ETS is used to monitor the human reader.
If the e-rater evaluation and the human score agree, the human score is used as the final score. If they disagree by a certain amount, a second human score is obtained, and the final score is the average of the two human scores. The average of the final scores on the two essays are taken and rounded to the nearest half-point interval on the 0–6 score scale.
