Assessment for Higher Education entry: admissions testing

This seminar will consider the place of admissions testing, in the overall range of assessment options for Higher Education entry.


This seminar will consider the place of admissions testing, in the overall range of assessment options for Higher Education entry. It will show how admissions testing is able to round out the holistic assessment of applicants to HE, in addition to, for example, the data on prior or predicted academic achievement provided by examination grades and the narrative provided by the UCAS personal statement. It will also look at how assessment of candidates through admissions testing is clearly distinguishable from other forms of academic assessment, such as A levels.

The seminar includes a case study presented by Professor Laycock on how admissions testing is used in the context of competitive entry to Medicine.
