Concluding Thoughts on the Internationalization of Test Reviews
Bartram, Dave
International Journal of Testing, v12 n2 p195-201 2012
Internationalization is possible, but the objectives need careful consideration. It is noted that the majority of countries do not have any form of test quality procedure and that only a small number have reviews, registration, certification, or some combination of these approaches. Internationalization could provide benefits at the least by providing agreement on criteria for quality of tests, and it could also provide guidance on good practice in test reviewing. Taking this further, one might facilitate review procedures by developing an international pool of competent reviewers. However, in the last resort, there will remain a need for local evaluation of the quality of test adaptations. (Contains 1 note.)
