Abstract [en]

This report contains selected results from the Swedish VALUTA-project (2001–2004). The VALUTA-project was a collaborative research effort by researchers from two universities and its aim was to analyse different components of the system for admission to higher education in Sweden. Four of these components were: a) the selection instruments, b) the criteria of study success, c) the relationship between the selection instruments and the criteria of study success, and d) the system of rules and regulations for admission. This report focuses on documents that have published by the VALUTA research group, and the overall aim is to report the major findings from the project. In sum, the VALUTA-project has passed through the stages of progress that were planned. The results from the project together with the development of ideas that took within the project have contributed to the knowledge about the admissions process.
