How Valid Are School Examinations? An Exploration into Content Validity.
Hoste, R.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v51 pt1 p10-22 Feb 1981
In this paper, a proposal is made by which a content validity coefficient can be calculated. An example of the use of the coefficient is given, demonstrating that different question combinations in a CSE biology examination in which a choice of questions was given gave different levels of content validity.
