Scio How are tests?

To succeed in solving Scio tests, it is helpful to understand how to actually occur. The clarification of this mystery, we ask those very professions Drbohlavovou Catherine, who works for a number of years working.

** You are one of the main people behind the tests, the OSP, which in many cases decisions about admission to college. How did you come to work with Scio? ** In essence, by chance, with Scio began in 1996 after the first year of the National Comparative Test work my brother over him I got in Scio company while still a student of various brigades, after school I started working for the Scio and work there today.

** So you can describe what it looks like one of the OSP process test? ** It is a long-term, development of each test takes about eight months, while part of the process during the various developmental stages of many people. Their work builds on itself, or mingle with each other, so co-ordinating the preparation of tests is always a great and exciting adventure. If I should briefly mention the different stages – at the beginning is always determined by the specification as a test of will by which the experienced team of people creating jobs. They travel at twice the number of pilot tests in which the piloting checked each task a number of parameters. It is based on the identified parameters is a short list of tasks a team of authors, those opponents are expressed independent and according to a clearly specified criteria is considered. Formal technical reviews are the basis for the further slimming down of the total number of jobs by the architectural team, practically already at such a number, which will be in sharp test. Here pretestace tasks or prořešení test a few students from the target group and subsequent discussions with the authors of the test, test. After coming pretestaci enable any further comments and the students are already starting to prepare tests for printing – through a series of technical and content control at all levels.

** What's making such a difficult test? ** The success of the test is based on two key issues – quality people who test preparation, and organizational skills to coordinate the process and the entire team of people. Choosing the right of authors, readers, pretestantů, proofreaders and all others who work on the quality of your test will contribute more than half a guarantee of success. The rest of the success depends on how you can plan everything so that even if you have any unexpected events that can ever happen to anyone on the team, able to prepare a test by the deadline printed in maintaining its high quality.

** Pursuant to know what „good“ and „bad“ role for this type of test, except that it passes the process mentioned? ** From a statistical point of view, such a good job that has good resolution. This means that communicates that role to solve those who solved the whole problem well, but those who have not been generally successful in the test. It is also a difficult task, about fifty percent – that it resolves correctly about half the test. Such properties will have a role, which is clear, understandable and easy to enter, offers a choice of options, which, although seemingly related, but only the correct inference, using their skills can be concluded that the right can only be only one of them . A good job is one that has an idea, an idea whose address appears at first glance seems complicated at second glance, but is very fast and elegant. Bad jobs are those that do not have those characteristics …

** To what extent do you depend on the success of the test preparation? ** Study assumptions not learn. Either you have it or you do not. It is true that they can develop appropriate training, but everyone gets to a certain „their“ limits, which exceed over. What can natrénovat but certainly, it is the work of the actual tests, training, and rethinking the strategy, which will test the resolve. Introduction to the test in advance, finding what you stand for and what not, about how much you need to solve individual problems of time that type of job for you in the relevant section should begin … All this is a tactic that can bring the solution to test precious points. Of course it also depends on how you manage stressful situations nezastírám that the test is to achieve good results need to be addressed in a very fast pace.

** Ever happened to anyone of the participants of a national benchmarking tests completed all tasks properly test the OSP? ** Yes, sometimes it happens but very rarely. For example, from about forty thousand tested to find one person who has the problem correctly. It's really an exceptional matter, tests are designed so that even the best have not solved all right – just because the test can distinguish between the capabilities of applicants and the top ten to twenty percent of the best candidates. This is especially for admission to prestigious faculties of universities is very important.

** While General study assumptions of Scio penetrate still more faculties of universities, Masaryk University will continue to give up their study abilities test. The OSP is different from the TSP test, hence the tests measuring IQ, which in some ways resemble? ** It is a long-term, development of each test takes about eight months, while part of the process during the various developmental stages of many people. Their work builds on itself, or mingle with each other, so co-ordinating the preparation of tests is always a great and exciting adventure. If I should briefly mention the different stages – at the beginning is always determined by the specification as a test of will by which the experienced team of people creating jobs. They travel at twice the number of pilot tests in which the piloting checked each task a number of parameters. It is based on the identified parameters is a short list of tasks a team of authors, those opponents are expressed independent and according to a clearly specified criteria is considered. Formal technical reviews are the basis for the further slimming down of the total number of jobs by the architectural team, practically already at such a number, which will be in sharp test. Here pretestace tasks or prořešení test a few students from the target group and subsequent discussions with the authors of the test, test. After coming pretestaci enable any further comments and the students are already starting to prepare tests for printing – through a series of technical and content control at all levels. . Leaving aside that the tests differ from the OSP tsp its structure, size, number of jobs is the key that differ in their conception. Tests of the OSP are not in any of the sections on testing of specific expertise, the tests actually tested only OSP level of verbal, quantitative and analytical thinking, basic operations with numbers. TSP examines unlike our tests of spatial imagination, there appear to tasks focused on propositional logic, focusing on the role of critical thinking. The IQ test is designed to search only logical links between symbols, our tests OSP are more diverse in terms of focus. OSP is a test in terms of its more comprehensive focus, follow several different specific abilities, there is more types of jobs. In contrast, IQ test contains only one type of task, called the Raven Progressive Matrices three triples files in which one image is always missing, and the following several options, measuring general intelligence – a factor g. IQ tests do not work with words, numbers, tables and graphs, but only with images. This is much less dependent on factors such as native language, family background, educational attainment, etc.. In contrast, the OSP is the educational attainment of parents and they graduated from high school depends very much. OSP test is compared to an IQ test in identifying needs related to the successful study of much more relevant. IQ tests, while following certain cognitive abilities, but how and whether it can be directly used in the study, IQ test does not say too much.

Thank you for the interview.
