WHAT IS A COMPUTER-ADAPTIVE TEST (CAT)?
The GMAT is a computer-adaptive test (CAT), which means that youwill use a computer to take the test. The software will determine thequestions based on your performance on the previous questions. In thisway, the test will customize itself to your level of ability. A correct re-sponse will be followed by a more difficult question; an incorrect responsewill be followed by an easier question. You get more points for correctlyanswering difficult questions than you do for correctly answering mediumor easier questions.In the traditional paper-and-pencil test, every examinee sees the samequestions. Because of the adaptive nature of the GMAT CAT, and the largepool of questions that are available, different examinees will be asked dif-ferent questions. Nonetheless, the questions have been designed to meetcontent and difficulty specifications that allow an equitable comparison of scores.
