Structural Components Revealed by Evaluating the Quality of Elementary School Tests.
Petrosko, Joseph M.; Shani, Esther
An analysis was made of quality ratings of elementary level standardized tests. Applying multidimensional scaling to intercorrelations of quality ratings, it was found that the criterion of content and construct validity was a central element in the evaluation of elementary tests. In addition, several types of validity and reliability were found to be closely related to one another. The study confirms previous results obtained with secondary tests, and has implications for test selection by evaluators and program directors. (Author)
