(Re)innovations in university admission tests: Potential consequences for test development, admission decisions, and test-takers
2009 (English)In: Innovation in assessment to meet changing needs, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper discusses the potential consequences of future changes to the Swedish Scholastic Assessment Test (SweSAT; based on the SAT), from a perspective of validity and efficiency. Since changes to the test will affect high-stakes decisions on student’s possibilities to access higher education, it is important to investigate how such changes will affect the admissions decisions: who will be admitted to higher education and who will not, which will lead to consequences to stakeholders on all levels. This paper presents a model for how a validation can be organised and some preliminary evidence of consequences that the changes will lead to.
