In this work, the theme of student guidance in the university context is outlined. In order to introduce the competence evaluation for student guidance, a new guidance project based on self-evaluation tests of the University of Bologna (Italy) is presented. In the paper, the issues of item specification and test calibration are explored, with reference to item response theory models. Models are for multiple-choice and binary items and they assume that a single ability is responsible for the student performance in the test. The test calibration is conducted for the Statistics Faculty and the results are discussed, together with the future developments of the project.
