CONT

À l'aide d'un test étalonné, on peut comparer la note d'un sujet isolé, appartenant à la même population parente et le classer par rapport au groupe qui a servi à étalonner l'épreuve. Et cela permet, si l'on a établi au préalable certaines correspondances entre les différents niveaux de réussite au test et les divers types de professions, d'orienter un sujet, en fonction de sa réussite au test [...]

OBS

étalonner : [...] faire passer [un test] à un grand nombre d'individus d'une population définie et homogène [...], puis regrouper les résultats en classes pour déterminer la variation des niveaux de performance dans cette population.
