THE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF AN AUDIO-VISUAL TEST INSTRUMENT FOR THE THEORETICAL DRIVING TEST

ENTWICKLUNG UND ERPROBUNG EINES AUDIO-VISUELLEN PRUEFUNGSINSTRUMENTS FUER DIE THEORETISCHE FAHRERLAUBNISPRUEFUNG

This paper is a report on an investigation into possible ways of conducting audio-visual theoretical driving tests class 3 under actual test conditions. Following an evaluation of available assessments and experience on this subject three tests were initially set up which were divided into 5 part tests respectively using varying questioning techniques. After an assessment by a group of experts the three series were tested on a total of 294 test cases at 5 test locations in the area covered by the Technical Supervisory Board, Rhineland. This is followed by a statistical analysis of each question. Following the extraction of unsuitable exercises, two parallel model series a and b were compiled. Each series included 25 problems and comprised the following parts: 5 problems with single yes-no decisions; 13 problems with 3 consecutively offered yes-no decisions; 3 problems involving the identification of a danger; 4 problems in which a danger is to be located. The test lasts 20 minutes. A repeated test-statistical analysis resulted in an improvement of the test instrument. Both test series are ready for use and represent in their contents and objective construction alternatives to the usual question papers. Finally a recommendation is given for the development of a comprehensive audio-visual test system for the theoretical part of the driving test. (TRRL)
