Abstract [sv]

För att öka trafiksäkerheten infördes en ny körkortsbehörighet 1 oktober 2009 för moped klass I, behörighet AM. För att få denna körkortsbehö­righet krävs en obligatorisk förarutbildning med övningskörning och ett godkänt kunskapsprov. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka provets kvalitet och mätsäkerhet samt studera resultatet på kunskapsprovet över tid samt uppdelat på kön, ålder och anmälningssätt till provet. En totalundersökning genomfördes där samtliga genomförda kunskapsprov under året analyserades. 17 275 personer genomförde minst ett kunskapsprov, av vilka 98,4 procent var 15 år. Resultatet visade att uppgifterna och provet höll en acceptabel kvalitet, eftersom reliabiliteten var på en acceptabel nivå och att två samtida provversioner var parallella i svårighetsgrad . Däremot var diskrimineringsförmågan väl låg för många uppgifter och detta bör beaktas i det fortsatta arbetet med nya prov. Analysen av provtagarnas resultat visade att 46 procent av provtagarna blev godkända på sitt första prov. Det fanns inga skillnader i andel godkända med avseende på kön och ålder. Däremot noterades en skillnad med avseende på anmälningssätt. De som anmäldes till provet av en trafikskola fick i högre utsträckning godkänt på sitt första kunskapsprov än de som anmält sig privat. Privat övningskörning är dock inte tillåten så samtliga har genomgått den obligatoriska utbildningen. Analysen av provresultaten över tid visade att andelen godkända ökade under våren och sommaren. Slutsatserna från studien är att kunskapsprovet för AM är av adekvat kvalitet. Då provet endast varit i bruk sedan 2009 bör upprepade studier av provets kvalitet och provresultat göras för att undersöka om kvaliteten bibehålls och för att studera trender i provresultat.

Abstract [en]

In order to improve traffic safety a new driving licence category – AM – was introduced on the 1st of October, 2009 which is required in order to drive a moped class I. In order to obtain this driving licence the aspiring driver must attend a mandatory training course, which includes driving practice, and pass a theory test. The aim of this study was to analyse the results from the theory test for driving licence category AM during its first year in order to examine its reliability as well as any differences in test results between groups based on various background factors. All test results that the Swedish Transport Agency has gathered during the year were analysed. 17 275 persons took at least one theory test. 98.4 of these were 15 years old. The results showed that the items and the test were of adequate quality since reliability was found to be at a reasonable level and two concurrent test versions were parallel as to level of difficulty. For many items the degree of discrimination was deemed to be at a too low level and this has to be taken into consideration in future test construction. The analysis of the test results showed that 46 per cent of the test-takers passed their first test. While there were no differences in the percentage of passed tests in regard to gender and age there were differences in regard to how they were registered for the test. Test-takers who had been registered for the test by a driving school were more likely to pass the theory test on their first attempt. Private driving practice is not allowed so all who registered for the test had completed mandatory training. The analysis of test results over time showed that the percentage of passed tests increased during the spring and summer. The conclusion from the study is that the theory test for AM is of adequate quality. Since the test has only been in use since 2009 repeated studies of the test results and the quality of the test should be carried out in order to examine whether the quality is maintained and to study trends in test results.
