Stepping Outside the Normed Sample: Implications for Validity
Hays, Danica G.; Wood, Chris
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v50 n4 p282-288 2017
We present considerations for validity when a population outside of a normed sample is assessed and those data are interpreted. Using a career group counseling example exploring life satisfaction changes as evidenced by the Quality of Life Inventory (Frisch, 1994), we showcase qualitative and quantitative approaches to explore how normative data could be a useful comparison to a dissimilar sample.
