Abstract:To evaluate the quality of educational assessments, several evaluation systems are available. These systems are, however, focused around the evaluation of a single type of test. Furthermore, within these systems, quality is defined as a non-flexible construct, whereas in this paper it is argued that the evaluation of test quality should depend on the test‘s purpose. Within this paper, we compare several available evaluation systems. From this comparison, design principles are derived to guide the development of a new, comprehensive quality evaluation system. The paper concludes with an outline of the new evaluation system, which intends to incorporate an argument-based approach to quality
