A Comparison of Criteria for Test Validation: A Meta-Analytic Investigation.
Nathan, Barry R., Alexander, Ralph A.
Personnel Psychology, v41 n3 p517-35 Fall 1988
Conducted meta-analyses of validity coefficients from tests of clerical abilities for five criteria (supervisor ratings, supervisor rankings, work samples, production quantity, production quality). Found ratings, rankings, work samples, and production quantity to all result in high test validities. Fifth criterion, production quality, had low predictability and did not generalize across situations. (Author/NB)
