The Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, introduced a pilot program of the Student Aptitude Test for Tertiary Admission (SATTA). This program included funding for uniTEST, provided by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). The SATTA evaluation report has now been published.
uniTEST has been developed to assist universities with the often difficult and time consuming processes of student selection. The test has been developed to assess the kinds of generic reasoning and thinking skills that underpin studies at higher education and that are needed for students to be successful at this level.
