WAA-SwD Technical Documentation
The technical documentation in this section is designed to provide an overview of the steps taken to develop and validate the WAA-SwD. The Standard Setting Report provides an overview of the steps taken to establish the cut scores for the examination. Standard setting studies are typically only done when a major revision or restructuring of the examination is completed. The Alignment Reports identify the degree to which educational expectations and the examination are in agreement. Alignment studies are typically conducted every few years with the results of these studies laying the foundation for future item development activities.
