English: This study explores the stability or consistency across several administrations of a
test designed to determine academic literacy levels. The reliability of two versions
(one English, the other Afrikaans) of such a test used for placement purposes at
three South African universities will first be analysed. Secondly, the number of
potential misclassifications on the test is assessed (ie the extent to which the test
does not measure fairly). Thirdly, the differences among the results of the various
administrations of the test are explored, with a view to establishing whether such
differences are both significant and relevant.
