Abstract [en]

Test takers’ perceptions of fairness in testing have rarely been studied. The aim of this study was to develop, apply and validate scores from an instrument measuring fairness perceptions in higher education. The theoretical rationale for examining test takers’ perceptions was the model of organizational justice, which consists of aspects of procedural- and distributive justice. A questionnaire measuring perceptions of procedural justice was administrated to 441 test takers of the Swedish Scholastic Assessment Test. Although the results indicated adequate validity evidence for the procedural justice scale, there is room for improvement of the overall structural validity on this measure. Finally, the test takers’ perception of principles of distributive justice is discussed in relation to higher education selection.
