چکیده    This study examined the substantive and predictive validity facets of the universityentrance examination for english major (ueeem) students. to that aim, 111english major students were recruited to report their scores on each of the subtestsof the test as well as their grade point average. sequential multiple regressions andfactor analysis were used in the analysis of the data. results acknowledged a 2-factor structure underlying the test. moreover, multiple regression analyses indicatedthat the presence of a large number of seemingly construct irrelevant items, arabic,and theology, coupled with items with no unique contribution to variation to theresponse variable, the general english subtest, has compromised the predictivevalidity of the test. the paper concludes with the implications it carries for the test’sstakeholders, particularly its developers and score users.
