Can There Be Validity without Reliability?
Moss, Pamela A.
Educational Researcher, v23 n2 p5-12 Mar 1994
The assumption that reliability is a necessary but insufficient condition for validity in assessment is challenged by exploring a dialectic between psychometric and hermeneutic approaches to drawing and warranting interpretations of human products of performance. Hermeneutic alternatives for epistemological and ethical purposes expand the range of high-stakes assessment. (Author/SLD)
