Validity, Science and Educational Measurement
Goldstein, Harvey
Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, v22 n2 p193-201 2015
The term "validity" is one of the most important and one of the most debated concepts in educational measurement. In this paper, I argue that various different approaches can all be viewed from an associational perspective. I also argue that our understanding will be enhanced by adopting some basic ideas of scientific reasoning to the process of establishing validity and making fully transparent the assumptions and procedures used by both test constructors and test users.
