Kohonen, Viljo, Ed.
The report gives the results of the 1974 joint student selection entrance test for English, administered simultaneously at the universities of Joensuu, Jyvaskyla and Turku. The test battery comprised 309 multiple-choice items and was completed by 843 candidates. Hirvonen's paper examines problems of student selection and theoretical aspects of language testing. Kohonen gives a brief account of the planning and administration of the examination and provides the main results of a statistical analysis of the tests. Jarrett examines the translation analysis test, and Hughes and May analyze the listening tests. Roininen's paper is a sociological study of the candidates' opinions about the selection procedures and the tests. In each paper, some suggestions have been offered for the further development of student selection. The research was carried out under a grant from the Ministry of Education. (Author)
