IT Tech Fair

UD faculty and staff members are invited to attend the 2014 UD Tech Fair on Oct. 28 in the Trabant University Center to explore new technology.

At the session, Jonathan Murray from the Educational Testing Service will present “The GRE General Test Is Changing. Find Out What You Need to Know -- and Why It's Good News for You.”

“ETS is making major revisions to the GRE general test in an effort to better assess student preparedness for graduate school. The verbal and quantitative reasoning sections will incorporate real-life problem solving,” says Charles Riordan, vice provost for graduate and professional education.

“Perhaps the most visible change is in the scoring scale,” Riordan notes. “The familiar 200-800 range in 10-point increments is moving to a 130-170 scale in single-point increments. I encourage graduate program directors, faculty and students considering taking the GRE test to attend the upcoming informational session.”

Those who plan to attend are asked to email Mary Zielinski [zielm@udel.edu] in the Office of Graduate and Professional Education.
