VILADRICH, Carme et al. Eighth review of tests published in Spain: a participative experience. Pap. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.42, n.1, pp.1-9.  Epub Dec 20, 2021. ISSN 1886-1415.

Every year, the Test Commission of the Spanish Psychological Association promotes the assessment of the test quality of several published tests. The aim of the present study is two-fold: a) to present results for the eighth review, and b) to consider the contribution of the universities in this process. Ten experts, 332 students, and seven professors participated in this edition and the standard protocol for review was aligned towards a service-learning format. For the 11 tests assessed, results showed an adequate quality (average of 3.9 points on a 1-5 rating scale) similar to previous years (r = .90). The strengths were test development and standardization, and a number of proposals for improving other sections were suggested. The service-learning approach contributed to the diversification of voices in the process with students' and experts' reports showing similar quality and an expected level of agreement (r = .67). We conclude that this project has helped to identify the opportunity to further deepen the use of shared language in order to strengthen the communication between the test publishers, the promoters of the Spanish model of test assessment, and the test users, especially in the case of beginners.
