Equity and fairness

UMAT is developed to rigorous professional and technical standards. Test questions are designed and developed by a team of ACER test writers, expert in their fields. All test questions must pass detailed panelling, trial testing, analysis and final review. The content, style and duration of the test are determined to ensure the testing program is relevant, fair, valid and reliable.

UMAT test data are subjected to statistical analysis to check that each test question has performed as required. Test questions in development are carefully scrutinised in an ongoing attempt to minimise gender, ethnic or religious bias, and to ensure the test is culturally fair. The test may contain a small number of trial questions which may not contribute to candidate scores.
