OPs and tertiary entrance

Orienteering through the tertiary pathways in Queensland

Currently, there’s a bit of a confusing thicket

  • We’re going to need a compass

  • Validity, reliability, equity

Validity

  • Is it useful for the purpose?

  • Does it pick the right kids?

  • Is it based on demonstrated achievement?

  • Does that achievement predict achievement in the courses where it is used for selection?

Reliability

  • Is the evidence it is based on reliable?

  • Is it based on enough evidence?

  • Is the evidence collected at a sufficiently fine-grained level?

Equity

  • No pathway should have an advantage over another

  • All students have the same opportunity regardless of where they live

  • All students have the same opportunity regardless of how well resourced they are

  • Inbuilt bias… towards highly achieving students

Let’s test out our compass

  • Inclusion of 100m sprint times

  • Reliable, equitable – not valid

  • “No single selection criterion…can select adequately now, or in the future among such a diverse range of applicants.”

    “It follows logically now, and for the future, that highly competitive courses at universities (along with all others) need to use multiple selection criteria to match students to courses”

    Nancy Viviani, 1990

Why are we still, in essence, using a single rank then?

  • QSA, not universities, can defend the decisions

  • FP eligibility has been a topic to be avoided

  • Equity in single pathway

  • Queensland built a pretty good one

Backwash – you have to build a TE system based in what you do at school

  • School-based assessment and teacher judgment

  • SAIs

  • Scaling test based in what is taught

You can have simple, or you can have fair

  • The basic idea is simple

  • SAIs awarded by teachers, two stages of scaling using QCS

  • A quick run over our quality control processes

QCS Test construction and marking

  • Item writing and trialling

  • Test construction

  • Marking

SAI surveillance

  • Purpose

  • 285 out of 334 schools

  • 1192 out of 3602 distributions

  • Clerical errors!

Small and intermediate groups

  • Not enough information for robust scaling

  • Small group boundaries

  • Smooth transition to large group process

Down-weighting of unusual QCS results

  • Within school measures

  • Isoweights

Scaling anomalies committee

  • Polyscores

  • QCS-polyscore mismatch

  • School identified cases

Year to year comparability of OPs

  • Why do it?

  • Using QCS

  • Using levels of achievement

Individual interventions

  • Finding similar students

  • The graph

  • The profile

Compass check

  • Valid

  • Reliable

  • Equitable

The game doesn’t stay the same – the challenges we face

  • Fine-grained ranks

  • Multiple pathways and game-playing behavior

  • Ineligible schedules

  • VET included in calculations

  • Fewer subjects

  • National agenda

  • Bradley review

In the forest, we all have to ensure we consult our compass
