Abstract:

This book is divided into three sections: The first is concerned with the historical and epistemological bases of validity, as well as current and future issues. Section II, The "Changing Faces of Validity," discusses the potential impact that developments in cognitive psychology and computer technology might have on the makeup and administration of tests. These essays point to changes in the validity criteria as well as methodology of measurement. Section III, "Testing Validity in Specific Subpopulations," examines the questions of validity in the testing of particular groups of individuals. Specifically considered are people with handicaps and members of linguistic minorities. In addition there are two methodological chapters which describe the latest developments in the assessment of differential item functioning. The last section, "Statistical Innovations in Validity Assessment," describes new methods of analysis that allow investigators to look more deeply into the validity question.
