Coverage and Content Validity of Vocational/Career Education Tests.
Erlich, Oded; Ogilvie, Victor N.
This paper describes and evaluates the coverage and content validity of the vocational/career education tests available commercially to high school educators. Tests were analyzed with respect to their collective coverage of the vocational/career education curriculum goals appropriate to grades 11 and 12, and the extent to which each possessed good content validity as defined by two criteria. The results indicate a good overall coverage of the curriculum goals for secondary education, however the poor content validity of the majority of tests is disappointing. The results of this analysis have many implications for the improvement of vocational/career education tests. (Author)
