Solano-Flores, Guillermo; Nelson-Barber, Sharon
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v38 n5 p553-73 May 2001
Proposes the concept of cultural validity as a form of test validity in science assessment. Contends that current approaches to handling student diversity in assessment are limited. Discusses ways in which adopting cultural validity as a criterion for test validity makes it necessary to shift assessment paradigms and adopt new procedures for assessment development.
