Abstract [en]

Over the last decade, national tests have become increasinglyimportant to define educational quality. Testing procedures are moretime consuming and take a prominent role as instruments for control andgovernance. This development necessitates critical analyses of prevalenttest constructions and of test validity. The article reports from an analysisof test items and scoring guidelines in the national test of Swedish in 9th grade, focusing specifically on the measurement of literary comprehension.The analysis is based on tests used 2005–2012. Drawing on test theoryand reading process theory, findings indicate that the construct definitionof reading comprehension in these tests is deeply problematic and thatalternative test constructions should be considered.
