Validating Placement Tests.
Breland, Hunter M.; Rogosa, David
Recent trends in college admissions are discussed in terms of their influence test validation procedures. In particular, the effects of new college admission practices are considered with respect to the problem of validating placement tests. Traditional test validation techniques are reviewed and compared to the needs specific to placement tests; an example of a placement test validation is presented. Content validity and trait-treatment interaction analyses are stressed in the example analysis, and the possibility of application of decision-theoretic utility models is introduced. In the example analysis, disordinal trait-treatment interactions were found in three colleges. (Author)
