This project has three separate components. The first is an analysis of the background data for GRE test takers using log-linear models for multi-way cross-classifications. The second is the computation of ethnic group GRE verbal and quantitative score means that are standardized for background data. The third is an analysis of the non-responses to the questions in the GRE background questionnaire. The data used in the analyses are from the 1975-76 and 1976-77 testing years. An appendix is included that gives versions of the published tables separately for graduate students and nongraduate students. This report was intended as an internal working paper for use by ETS staff. (122pp.)
