Maul's paper, "Rethinking Traditional Methods of Survey Validation" (Andrew Maul), contains two stages. First he presents empirical results that cast doubt on traditional methods for validating psychological measurement instruments. These results motivate the second stage, a critique of current conceptions of psychological measurement and suggestions for improving on the role of psychological measurement. This author agrees with Maul that traditional methods of survey validation need rethinking; however, he has some concerns about his path to that conclusion. Sherry begins this commentary by discussing the significance of his empirical results in order to motivate some general remarks on the criteria for empirical measurement.
