阅读部分调整明显,新GRE考试变革解读

2011-05-16 新GRE考试


  新GRE考试内容变化解读。新的GRE考试当中关于阅读部分所进行的形式上调整是比较明显的,首先从题目所占的比例上来说传统GRE考试语文部分中阅读理解和句子填空试题仅占语文考试题目比重的不到二分之一(18/38),而新GRE考试则主要由这两部分试题组成。虽然表面上来说,从题目的总体数量上从38道题缩减到了20道,但是由于当中增加了阅读的比重,所以导致考生在做题当中阅读的量增大,相应的难度也有所提升,尤其是与之前同学们大量背单词去解决相对应的类比和反义产生了比较大的背离。针对这样的改革,同学在备考的过程当中应当更加强调阅读能力上的提升,同时针对变化,考生应当作出相应的调整,提升深入的理解能力和分析逻辑的能力。以具体的ETS官方所给出的阅读理解的样题为例,我们来看看到底发生了怎样的变化。

  首先题型上从原来的传统的五选一变成了三种不同的考题

  第一种题型:多项选择题

  Sample Multiple-choice Questions - Select One Answer Choice

  1. The passage implies which of the following about the current cost of generating electricity­

  A. It is higher than it would be if better technologies for capturing carbon dioxide were available。

  B. It is somewhat less than the cost of electricity transmission and distribution。

  C. It constitutes at most half of the delivered price of electricity。

  D. It is dwelt on by policymakers to the exclusion of other costs associated with electricity delivery。

  E. It is not fully recovered by the prices charged directly to electricity consumers。

  Answer: C

  样题当中所给的第一题即是传统的五选一的题型,这种题型在解题的过程当中基本与现行的考试所出的题型没有太大的差异。是一道传统的推断题,我们可以根据当中给出的the current cost of generating electricity找到原文当中的相应句子“Currently, technology that would capture carbon dioxide emitted by power plants and sequester it harmlessly underground or undersea instead of releasing it into the atmosphere might double the cost of generating electricity.”由此答案确定为C。
