From GMAC: (official GMAT authority)

News Release Issued: June 25, 2010 6:00 AM EDT
Next Generation GMAT Exam to Add New Integrated Reasoning Section
Global Business School Exam to Introduce Innovative New Questions in June 2012
To access this press release and related videos on the GMAC News Center, please visit gmac.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=112.
San Diego, California—The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) will add an innovative new section designed to measure people’s ability to evaluate information from multiple sources. The new integrated reasoning section, scheduled to be introduced in June 2012, will provide business schools with a window into how prospective students respond to the kinds of complex challenges they will encounter as managers in today’s information-rich business environment.

The coming enhancements to the GMAT exam stem from multiple surveys of business school faculty conducted during the past four years by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owners of the exam. GMAC solicits input from faculty as a regular part of its commitment to continuously improving the GMAT exam. The Council unveiled the changes to the exam here today at its Annual Industry Conference, the largest gathering of graduate business school professionals in the world.
The integrated reasoning portion of the GMAT will capitalize on innovations in technology and assessments and feature questions that further enhance the validity of the test. These questions include information from multiple sources, such as charts, graphs, and spreadsheets. Examinees will be asked to analyze information, draw conclusions and discern relationships between data points, just as they must do in business school.
“The new integrated reasoning section of the GMAT will be a microcosm of today’s b-school classroom,” said Dave Wilson, president and CEO of GMAC. “These questions will provide critical intelligence to schools about the ability of prospective students to make sound decisions by evaluating, assimilating or extrapolating data.”
The overall length of the GMAT exam (three and a half hours) will not change. The new integrated reasoning section will be 30 minutes long and replace one of two essays that are part of the GMAT’s analytical writing section. Admissions officers have stated and GMAC research has shown that performance on the essays is closely aligned, making a single essay acceptable for predicting performance.

The GMAT exam’s verbal and quantitative sections will not change. As a result, when the new section is introduced in June 2012, tests will be scored on the same 200–800 scale used today. Test takers will receive a separate score for the essay—as they do now—and another distinct score on the new integrated reasoning section.

Dear XXXXXXXXXX:

I am pleased to share a webcast presentation on the Next Generation GMAT exam with you. The GMAT exam has been on a journey of continuous evolution since its inception in 1954. The Next Generation GMAT, or 10th generation, will launch on June 4, 2012.

This presentation explains why we are updating the exam, identifies the skills that faculty at business schools want to see measured in this new version of the test, and highlights the process we have put in place to launch the exam.

I hope that this presentation provides you with a good introduction to the Next Generation GMAT exam. We will keep you informed as the test is developed and new question types are finalized. Please do not hesitate to contact me (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX) if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Joanna Graham
Associate Director, GMAT Program
