Abstract

This chapter discusses how benchmark levels were determined after the results of the PBAE were made available to the ELBSC (English Language Benchmark Subject Committee); it examines how analytically marked tests may be calibrated with criterion-referenced tests and how ‘cut’ scores may be determined for them.
