Abstract:In the different tests and examinations that are used at a national level in the Netherlands, a variety of equating and linking procedures are applied to maintain assessment standards. This chapter presents an overview of potential sources of information that can be used in the standard setting of tests and examinations. Examples from test practices in the Netherlands are provided that apply some of these sources of information. This chapter discusses how the different sources of information are applied and aggregated to set the levels. It also discusses under which circumstances performance information of the population would be sufficient to set the levels and when additional information is necessary
