Validity of the Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery with Learning Disabled Students.
McGue, Matthew; And Others
The validity of the Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery was examined using test results of 50 learning disabled fourth graders. The appropriateness of the developmental strategy and the evidence for the external validity of the cluster measures contained in the battery were considered. Results indicated that the factor and scholastic aptitude measures had little external validity when using other standardized measures as criteria. It was suggested that the lack of demonstrable validity resulted from the questionable nature of the operational definitions of the test's constructs. (Author/CL)
