Behrman, Edward H.
Journal of Developmental Education, v23 n3 p12-18 Spr 2000
Discusses validity issues associated with three popular content-general reading college placement tests and then presents a theoretical argument to support an alternative placement procedure using content-specific testing. Proposes that content-specific tests would have improved content-related and construct-related validity. States that more research is needed to provide evidence of criterion-related validity.
