Learning from exam hell
Daito Bunka University, Japan
How we made a Japanese university's English entrance exams less stressful — for the writers.
The results of 93 English entrance exams from Daito Bunka University are analysed to show the effects of changes to the exam-writing process over the past 15 years. The exam sets have been made more consistent in level, and more reliable for their purpose of sorting candidates by English level, despite an increase in required workload, and a decrease in personnel and time available.
