This book provides a refined definition of standardized educational test fairness that can be utilized in multiple contexts to better understand the experiences and perspectives of diverse groups of test takers. Globally, there has been a significant influx in the use of and dependence on standardized tests to foster educational improvements. Standardized testing programs such as TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study), are designed to provide information about a country's global standing in multiple academic areas, ranking individuals and/or groups relative to the performance of others. The high-stakes nature of standardized tests has increased public concern and interest in issues related to test fairness. Since standardized test performance has a profound influence on multiple aspects of educational systems, it is imperative to better understand and examine issues of fairness.

Quality assurance has been a major issue in Higher Education discourse during the past decade. Evaluations, accreditations and assessments have almost become standard procedures within the framework of translation studies. This quest for quality has not only to integrate market needs and new market requirements, but also novel strategies in training - whereby training learners and trainers has to be given equal attention. Translation quality has become a key issue in the interlinguistic and intercultural communication market as well as in the translator education environment. It has to be looked upon as a multifaceted issue to which all major players have to contribute: institutes of higher education, labor market and individual translators. Within the framework of the CIUTI FORUM 2008, the speakers emphasized the different aspects of quality from the point of view of the trainer, the professional and the market. This volume tries to highlight all those quality issues from an international, interdisciplinary and multifaceted perspective.

Der Übergang von der Schule zur Hochschule ist trotz der in den letzten Jahren veränderten schulischen und hochschulischen Bedingungen - hier die KMK-Beschlüsse zur Umgestaltung der gymnasialen Oberstufe, dort das Bachelor-Master-System - immer noch ein Engpass des Bildungssystems. Spezifische Traditionen, Rationalitäten und Praktiken des Lehrens und Lernens verursachen jeweils außerordentliche Orientierungs- und Entscheidungsprobleme, hohe Abbrecherquoten, eine große Zahl von Studienfachwechseln und überlange Studienzeiten. Vor diesem Hintergrund richten die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Bandes die Aufmerksamkeit auf den Übergang Schule - Hochschule, da dort ein strategisch relevantes Forschungs- und Gestaltungsfeld "zwischen den Institutionen" liegt. Sie analysieren und diskutieren, wie sich institutionelle und strukturelle Lernbedingungen, sozioökonomische und bildungskulturelle Lebensbedingungen sowie individuelle Ressourcen und Persönlichkeitsmerkmale auf die Entscheidungs- und Entwicklungsprozesse junger Erwachsener in der Sekundarstufe II, in der Übergangsphase und in der Studieneingangsphase auswirken.
