This presentation will review the research, development and validation of an academic writing task to be used as part of an HE admissions test. The presentation will describe the basis for the test mandate in terms of academic literacy issues in HE and how the test development plan has attempted to build a strong and defensible argument not just for the validity and reliability of the assessment but also for its beneficial impact with regard to the usefulness of the test score information for receiving institutions when making recommendations on follow-up action needed post admission.
