Construct Validity in Psychological Measurement; Proceedings of a Colloquium on Theory and Application in Education and Employment (Henry Chauncey Conference Center, Princeton, New Jersey, October 1979).
Office of Personnel Management, Washington, DC.; Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
The stimulus for this colloquium was the convergence of several significant developments bearing on the construct validation of standardized tests and other assessment methods. Of these developments, some were fundamental to psychology as a science; others reflected socio-political pressures on measurement in education and employment. The ten papers presented at the colloquium were: (1) "Foundations of Test Theory" by Charles L. Hulin and Lloyd G. Humphreys; (2) "The Good Theories Do" by Clark Glymour; (3) "Measurement of Abilities Constructs" by John B. Carroll; (4) "Research Models for Exploring Constructs" by Norman Frederiksen; (5) "Application of a Construct Model in Assessment for Employment" by Richard H. McKillip and Hilda Wing; (6) "The Construct Validity of Aptitude Tests: An Information-Processing Assessment" by Robert J. Sternberg; (7) "Construct Validity and Personality Assessment" by Douglas N. Jackson; (8) "Constructs and Their Vicissitudes in Educational and Psychological Measurement" by Samuel Messick; (9) "Legal Issues in Construct Validity" by Barbara Lerner; and (10) "Construct Validity and Validity Generalization" by John E. Hunter. (Author/RL)
