Investigation of the Relative Content Validity of Norm-Referenced and Domain-Referenced Arithmetic Tests.
Kwansa, Kofi Bassa
Norm-referenced and domain-referenced methods were each used to build sixth grade arithmetic tests. The tests were administered to samples of students and the results used for making content validity comparisons between the tests. Findings showed that the domain-referenced tests had higher content validity than the norm-referenced tests, that parallel forms of the norm-referenced tests did not show equivalent degree of content validity between themselves, that scores on the norm-referenced tests correlated highly with scores on the domain-referenced tests, and that the domain-referenced tests had slightly smaller standard errors of estimation and prediction than the norm-referenced tests.
