Begreppet komplettering i ett examinationsperspektiv: Ett försök med det praktiska körkortsprovet
2007 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
The present study concerns an experiment where part of the Swedish Road Administration’s right to the driving-license examination was delegated to the driver education. During the experimental period test takers that failed the practical driving test, due to an isolated shortcoming, were given the opportunity to be retested in a traffic school, with focus mainly on that shortcoming.
The main purpose of this study was to examine the definition of the isolated shortcoming and to obtain indications of whether the judgements of these are as alike as possible. Another purpose was to study the attitudes and experience of participants in the experiment through interviews. Furthermore, the intention was to use available statistics from the experiment to examine to what extent the parties involved, driver examiners and driver instructors, where able to make reliable and relevant judgements regarding the isolated shortcoming.
One conclusion is that the definition of the isolated shortcoming cannot be considered to be reliable since available statistics, as well as results from the interviews, indicate insecurity about the definition. Another conclusion from the interviews is that the overall attitude toward the experiment was positive among driver examiners and driver instructors.
