This session will consider the deepest and probably the most confusing of controversies of modern validity theory: what is a construct, and are constructs actually that important when planning and conducting validation work? In the field of education, critics have recently proposed that the conceptual baggage associated with construct validity is unnecessary, and that we would be better to return to more straightforward conceptions more in line with the traditional concept of content validity. Do these critics have a point? Participants will be encouraged to explore the meaning of constructs within construct validity and the extent to which constructs are central to validation within educational assessment.
