Four Measures of Topical Knowledge: A Study of Construct Validity.
Valencia, Sheila W.; And Others
Reading Research Quarterly, v26 n3 p204-33 1991
Investigates the construct validity of measures designed to assess topical knowledge. Interviews students about their knowledge of four topics and administers a recognition test. Finds no strong correlation between the two. Concludes that recognition measures assess a specific body of information, whereas interviews open a broader window on a student's knowledge. (SR)
