Test Reviewing in Germany
Hagemeister, Carmen; Kersting, Martin; Stemmler, Gerhard
International Journal of Testing, v12 n2 p185-194 2012
In 2006, a (new) German standard for test reviewing was passed (Testkuratorium, 2006). There was already a European standard in place (European Federation of Psychologists' Associations, 2008). This article presents the German standard for test reviewing and explains how the German test review system was derived from demands in the German standard DIN 33430 for proficiency assessment procedures. Crucial decisions that were made prior to the construction of the standards are clarified, including why other (e.g., European/Dutch) existing standards were not simply translated. Furthermore, advances, difficulties, challenges, and perspectives regarding the test reviewing system in Germany are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
