Concurrent Validity of the National Teacher Examinations.
Wexler, Norman
To investigate the concurrent validity of the National Teacher Examinations, test scores of over 31,000 candidates were correlated with self-reported Grade Point Averages (GPA's). The overall correlation between the Weighted Common Examination Total (WCET) and GPA was .37. Validity indices for the Area Examinations ranged from .08 to .50 with a median of .33. Using 18 selected institutions, the correlation of their mean WCET scores within five GPA levels and GPA level was .70. The latter result suggests overall correlations behave more like lower bound estimates. The WCET and most Area Examinations were concluded to have at least moderate concurrent validity. (Author)
