Samstämmighet mellan mål och prov: En studie av det svenska förarutbildningssystemet
2007 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
In 2006 a new curriculum for driver education and a new theory test were introduced in Sweden. As the driver education system is a criterion-referenced system, it is important that there is a correspondence between the curriculum, education and the test. The main purpose of the present study was to examine the alignment between the old curriculum for driver education in Sweden and the old theory test, as well as the alignment between new curriculum and the new theory test using Bloom’s revised taxonomy. In addition, the purpose was to examine the interrater reliability when categorizing theory test items into Bloom’s taxonomy. The interrater reliability of judges categorizing the items into Bloom’s taxonomy was moderate to good for the old and new theory test, but somewhat better for the new test. The examination of alignment used four different indicators: content, cognitive complexity, balance and range. Results demonstrated better alignment between the old curriculum and the old test than between the new curriculum and the new test. The conclusion was that the curriculum has changed but that the new theory test still resembles the old test to a great extent. To improve alignment, the new theory test has to be revised in accordance with the curriculum.
