Toward the Development of Realistic Measures of Performance Effectiveness.
Swezey, Robert W.
Though domain-oriented and norm-referenced tests are appropriate for some situations, objective-oriented and criterion-referenced tests must be used to gather additional information. Objectives for such tests must include a statement of the desired performance, the test conditions, and the standards of acceptance. When tests are constructed the following questions should be considered: (1) fidelity--the degree to which the test resembles the desired outcome; (2) objectivity of the measurement; (3) scoring problems; (4) emphasis on product or process; (5) reliability; and (6) content, concurrent, and predictive validity.
