Abstract

One of the challenges facing those involved in the assessment and selection of high attainers is the fact that so many students get the same high grades (in measurement theory this is referred to as a lack of discrimination). This article discusses some of the issues and methods used in identifying (in order to select) high-attaining candidates.
