Metoder för kravgränssättning: En teoretisk granskning samt diskussion av lämplig metod för ett målrelaterat certifieringsprov av typ körkortsprovets teoriprov
2000 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
The main purpose of this study was to consider standard setting in a theoretical perspective. The aim was to describe the method categories which are used to set a standard, and to examine which category is the most suitable for a criterion-referenced licensure test. Criterion-referenced tests are used to ascertain an examinee’s status with respect to a well-defined criterion. A licensure test is administrated at the end of an education and covers the whole course. Another purpose of the study was to examine which method, in the most suitable category of methods, should be used to set a standard on a criterion-referenced licensure test like the Swedish driving licence test. The study describes how the standards are set in the old and new Swedish theoretical driving licence tests. The criteria used to decide the most suitable method were technical adequacy and practicability, each defined in several ways, and some specific criteria since it is a licensure test. The theoretical examination showed that it is not possible to find one single method that is best in all possible situations. The conclusion was that either Informed Judgement or Iterative Angoff was the most preferable method for setting a standard on the Swedish driving licence test.
