Basic Competence Test: A Review and Prospect
This article provides an overview of the development of the Basic Competence Test (BCTEST). As an important part of the reform for secondary education in Taiwan, BCTEST is a standardized test designed to measure the educational achievement of junior high school graduates. To ensure high reliability and validity of this assessment, we established a complete test construction procedure and continue to refine it throughout the years. This paper puts emphasis on the following components: the test item developing and banking procedure, computer-assisted test assembly, the scaling method, and the scoring mechanism of the Chinese writing assessment, as well as its related on-line scoring system. Information from this paper is expected to offer useful and valuable insights into hands-on design and operation of large-scale standardized testing for test practitioners and psychometric researchers. Finally, with the possible implementation of a twelve-year compulsory education program in the near future, the BCTEST is sure to take on a more important role in the new educational evaluation and admission policy system.
