Högskoleprovet våren och hösten 2006: provdeltagargruppens sammansättning och resultat
2006 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Since spring 1977 the Swedish Scholastic Assessment Test (SweSAT) has been used as an instrument for selection to higher education. The test is administered twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn, and it is allowed to take the test several times. The test scores are valid for five years, and for test-takers with more than one test result the best valid result is used for admittance. After each test administration the raw score is transformed to a standardized score on a scale from 0.0 to 2.0, where 2.0 is the best result. The aim of the standardization is to equate the scores between different test occasions, i.e. it should be just as easy or difficult to get a certain standardized score on one test occasion as on another. The aim of this report is to describe the group of test-takers in spring and in autumn 2006 regarding composition and results. Results are presented for test-takers of different gender, age and background education. Further a description is given of the equating procedure and the outcome of the standardization. Finally some results are presented of the effects of repeated test-taking. The results presented in the report are based on data processing performed by Mats Hamrén, head of the data management of the SweSAT.
