Standards for Assessment
The Framework is the result of a process that started a few years ago when AEA Europe members discussed the issue of quality standards during their annual conference. A Standards Committee was formed to come up with suggestions about if and how AEA Europe could play a role. A first draft of a document which addresses this issue, The European Framework of Standards for Educational Assessment, has now been published.
The Framework is intended to be an instrument that test providers, score users and (educational) authorities can use to compare, contrast and evaluate practices in the development, administration, scoring and reporting of a wide variety of tests, assessments and assessment programs. It is first and foremost a tool that will facilitate transparency for providers, users and (educational) authorities. It will support the reviewing and presentation of evidence that the assessment methods being used meet certain quality criteria.
