Contextualizing the Interpretation of Reliability Data.
Nichols, Paul D.; Smith, Philip L.
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v17 n3 p24-36 Fall 1998
This essay argues that reliability should be reconceptualized in a way that reflects the importance of the theoretical expectations of the test specialist and the learning and problem solving of the test takers. It is time to characterize clearly the substantive theoretical framework supporting reliability studies and the technical evaluation of assessment practices. (SLD)
