The Graduate Skills Assessment (GSA) is a new test with complex aims and is in the first stages of development and application. Principally, the test aims to assess a set of valued and widely applicable generic skills that may be developed by the university experience and which are relevant to university achievement and graduate work.
This publication reports on the validity of the first stage of the Graduate Skills Assessment test (GSA Stage One Validity Study), which covers the first two tests, Exit 2000 and Entry 2001. These tests involved the participation of 3663 students drawn from nine broad fields of study across 27 Australian universities. Details of these populations are given in the GSA Summary Reports (Hambur & Glickman, 2001, Hambur & Le, 2001). The study was commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of Education, Training and Youth Affairs.
