Workshop - Effective Test Taking Strategies for the GRE

You are about to finish your current academic endeavor, but you already know that you want to pursue a degree in higher education in the United States. Maybe you are an Natural Sciences undergraduate student who wants to achieve a graduate degree in Chemistry, or perhaps you are a current graduate student majoring in Educational Research and Evaluation who wants to pursue a Ph.D. in Measurement, Research, and Evaluation.

Among the things you need to do in order to complete the process of admission is to take ETS's Graduate Record Examination General Test. The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. Most institutions that offer graduate degrees require the GRE General Test as part of their admission requirements (to be sure, check before enrolling).

We at the Office of Evaluation of Student Learning are committed to strengthen our students' abilities and skills, as it is expressed in our Institution's mission, such as critical thinking, effective communication, social responsibility, research and creation, information literacy, logical-mathematical reasoning, among others. Thus, the Effective Test Taking Strategies for the GRE Workshop is our way of proving an opportunity to prepare our students better for their next path on their academic journey to higher education.
