Educational Histories and Academic Potential: Can Tests Deliver?
Yeld, Nan; Haeck, Wim
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v22 n1 p5-16 Mar 1997
A new South African testing approach designed to assess potential university students' ability to cope with English-medium academic education is also designed to take into account the effects of educational disadvantagement and minimize reliance on students' content-based secondary school experiences. The approach incorporates principles from constructivist learning theories. Preliminary results of the testing approach are discussed. (Author/MSE)
