Abstract

[ENGLISH] The paper analyses the efficiency of entry tests as a tool to select students applying to Universities. It is based on data collected at the Faculty of Economics of "Universita' Politecnica delle Marche", where all the applicants are subject to a non-selecting entry test. For students enrolled in 2010, data on first-year course academic performances are available. Our empirical analyses show that the entry test does not add information on expected students performance compared to the information provided by students secondary school background. The more efficient selection method (expecially in term of drop-out rate reduction) is the one based on students career previous to enrolment, eventually beared out by the results of the entry test. ;[ITALIANO] Il paper analizza l'efficienza del test di ingresso rispetto altre metodologie di selezione per l'ammissione all'Universita'. E' basato sui dati raccolti presso la Facolta' di Economia dell'Universita' politecnica delle Marche, dove tutti gli studenti sono sottoposti ad un test di ingresso non selettivo e dove si dispone di dati relativi alla performance nel primo anno di studio. I risultati delle analisi empiriche indicano che il solo test di ingresso non fornisce di fatto informazioni aggiuntive rispetto al voto di maturita e al tipo di diploma. Il modo piu' efficiente per selezionare gli studenti (specialmente in termini di riduzione del tasso di drop-out atteso) Š basato sulle informazioni derivanti dalla carriera scolastica, eventualmente corroborate dall'utilizzo di un test.
