Standard-setting: International state of research and practices in the Nordic countries

CEMO arranged a conference on Standard setting 21 to 23 September 2015. See the impressions from the conference and download the presentations from this website.

For full program, see here.



Standard setting targets at ambitious and crucial societal objectives by defining benchmarks at different achievement levels and thus providing feedback to policymakers, schools and teachers about strengths and weaknesses of the school system as well as about school and teaching quality including which individual students are at risk to fail. Standard setting consists of procedures to establish conceptual frameworks for different achievement levels per subject and to operationalize these in terms of passing scores and defining cut points on the score scale that are used for the classification into the levels. Candidate-centred and test-centred procedures exist.
