  美国新泽西州普林斯顿市 (2007年4月2日) ── 美国教育考试服务中心(ETS)宣布,经由ETS与GRE董事会执行委员会共同商议,取消原定于2007年9月在全球推出新GRE普通考试的计划。

  ETS和GRE董事会致力于不断改进GRE考试质量。GRE官员表示,虽然尽快举办新GRE考试能够带来众多益处,但鉴于目前网考网络还不能充分满足新GRE考试所有考生的报考需求,因此决定取消新GRE普通考试推出计划。

  与此同时,ETS将继续在全球通过“机考”和“机考加笔考”两种形式举办现行GRE普通考试。

  ETS的GRE项目执行董事David Payne 表示:“此次取消新GRE普通考试的决定,是在斟酌考生以及使用GRE普通考试成绩作为录取依据的研究生院的利益之后作出的。经过反复讨论和评估,我们一致认为现行GRE普通考试更利于考生灵活选择考点和考试时间,同时也能够向研究生院提供评判考生研究能力的可靠标准。”

  Payne补充说明:“众多研究生院为新GRE普通考试的开发和试行工作提供了大力支持和帮助,但同时他们也表示对现行GRE普通考试的质量感到满意,可以耐心等候时机成熟时再逐步开展考试改进工作。ETS的此项决定符合他们的利益和需求。”

  现行GRE普通考试的报名工作将不受影响。在中国、印度和日本地区,日前关闭的现行GRE普通考试报名工作将在近期恢复,确保考生在截止日期之前顺利报考。 在中国大陆、香港、台湾和韩国地区,GRE普通考试将继续通过“机考加笔考”形式分两次完成,分析性写作部分在机考考点进行,而语文和数学部分的考试则以笔考形式完成。

  ETS官员将继续与GRE董事会合作在未来实施多项考试内容改进计划,但目前将不会考虑采用全新考试网络形式。

  PrinCETon, N.J. (April 2, 2007) -- ETS has cancelled plans to launch the revised Graduate Record Examinations? (GRE) General Test.The decision was made in consultation with the Executive Committee of the GRE Board.

  While ETS and the Board remain committed to improving the test, on balance, GRE officials said they believe problems guaranteeing complete access to the new Internet-based test outweighed the benefits of immediately moving to the new format.

  ETS had originally planned to launch the revised GRE General Test worldwide in September.Instead, the organization will continue to offer the test worldwide in current formats – computer-based, continuous testing or combined computer-based and paper-based administration.

  “The decision to cancel the revised GRE General Test best serves the interests of test takers and the graduate institutions that use those scores to make admissions decisions,” says David Payne, Executive Director of the GRE Program at ETS. “After much debate and evaluation, it BECame clear that the current format offers students more convenient and flexible opportunities to test when and where they choose, while still providing score users with valid predictors of test takers’ preparedness for graduate school study.”

  Payne adds, “While the graduate community supports, and in fact helped develop and pilot the revised GRE General Test, they have also stated that they are satisfied with the current General Test, until such time as improvements can be gradually implemented.ETS is being responsive to their best interests.”

  Registration for the current GRE will continue as normal.Registrations in India, China and Japan, which had been closed, will be reopened in the near future to accommodate application deadlines.In Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Republic of Korea, the Analytical Writing section will continue to be computer-based, while the Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning sections will be offered at separate paper-based administrations.

  ETS officials will continue to work with the GRE Board to implement many of the planned test content improvements in the future even though the test will not currently migrate to a new platform.
