Standards, Standard setting and Accountability in the Netherlands.

Declining PISA results and disappointing results on Computer Adaptive entrance tests for teacher training result in a national initiative in the Netherlands to raise the level of student’,s performance on Dutch language and mathematics at different levels of education. For this purpose, Cito has been asked to develop tests corresponding with consecutive reference levelsat different stages in a student career: end of primary education, end of basic education, end of ,secondary education and end of senior secondary education. At each stage basic competence levels are determined. Some of these levels correspond with national examination levels. ,Furthermore, Cito is involved in the development of fully adaptive exams. In vocational ,education starting in 2014, based on Cito’,s experience with the teacher training entrance tests, adaptive exams will be available.In this presentation we will discuss different views on standards and standard setting ,procedures in relation to schools accountability and high stakes testing.
