Program Oversight and Improvement
- GRE® Board: A Board of 18 graduate school deans guides the GRE® Program. The Board’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee considers fairness, access and diversity issues.
- Fairness Standards: The ETS Standards for Quality and Fairness build upon standards jointly developed by the American Educational Research Association, the National Council on Measurement in Education and the American Psychological Association.
- Regular Audits: The GRE Program is scrutinized every three years by a team of internal and external auditors to ensure adherence to the standards and to improve any weaknesses.
- Ongoing Research: The fairness and validity of the GRE test is backed by ongoing research. The technical quality of the GRE tests are verified by the GRE Program’s Technical Advisory Committee, which is made up of members of the graduate community who are technical and measurement experts.
