Att mäta skrivförmåga: en forskningspresentation om provformat, reliabilitet, validitet samt sociala aspekter
2004 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Since 1977, the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test (SweSAT) is used for selection to higher education. The test contains five subtests measuring verbal and quantitative abilities. The three subtests constituting the verbal part of the test aims to measure word comprehension and reading abilities in Swedish and English. There have, however, been discussions whether SweSAT also should contain a subtest measuring writing ability. Such an addition, it has been argued, would not only broaden the coverage of the abilities being measured, but would also signal the importance of writing skills throughout the educational system. As a response to this request, this report is a survey of research in the area of measuring writing ability, with focus on questions regarding format, reliability, validity and social aspects. The report also highlights issues for research that are relevant to cover in the event that SweSAT would measure writing abilities.
