Decision Reliability and Validity: Contributions and Limitations of Alternative Assessment Strategies.
Barnett, David W.; Macmann, Gregg M.
Journal of Special Education, v25 n4 p431-52 Win 1992
This paper uses the concepts of decision reliability and validity to analyze three alternative psychoeducational assessment strategies: multiple gating, template matching, and time-series methods. It argues that relatively little knowledge is gained through analysis of individual scales and assessment technologies without considering the decision-making context and studying individual outcomes.
