Beginning in January 2008, the GRE Program will begin including reformatted reading passages in the Verbal Reasoning section of the computer-based GREŽ General Test. Currently, reading passages accompanying Reading Comprehension questions contain line numbers that reference specific parts of the passages. Those line numbers will be replaced with highlighting when necessary in order to focus the test taker on specific information in the passage.

The reformatted question types are part of the first phase of the General Test improvements that will be introduced gradually over time. During this time, test takers may encounter both formats in their tests. The GRE Program believes that the new format will help students more easily find the pertinent information in reading passages. The GRE Program will begin counting these question types toward examinee scores as soon as an adequate sample of data from the operational testing environment is available.
