Consequences of Test Score Use as Validity Evidence: Roles and Responsibilities
Nichols, Paul D.; Williams, Natasha
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v28 n1 p3-9 Spr 2009
This article has three goals. The first goal is to clarify the role that the consequences of test score use play in validity judgments by reviewing the role that modern writers on validity have ascribed for consequences in supporting validity judgments. The second goal is to summarize current views on who is responsible for collecting evidence of test score use consequences by attempting to separate the responsibilities of the test developer and the test user. The last goal is to offer a framework that attempts to prescribe the conditions under which the responsibility for collecting evidence of consequences falls to the test developer or to the test user.
