Absolute standard


core definition

An absolute standard is a fixed specification of a set of skills or abilities or, in its simplest form, a pass mark that needs to be achieved by a student.


explanatory context

Absolute standards are contrasted with relative standards.


analytical review

Wojtczak (2002) states:

An absolute standard refers to the knowledge and skills a student must possess in order to pass a given course. An absolute standard stays the same over multiple administrations relative to the content specifications of the test. The failure rate may vary due to changes in the group's ability, from one administration to the other.
