The concept of validity has been broadened in the last fifteen years and has become the key issue for those who want to create appropriate assessments. Current definitions of validity include consideration of the uses and consequences of assessments. This seminar will look at different facets of validity – like face, content and construct validity – and will focus particularly on the adequacy of our interpretations and actions based on test scores. The challenge to assessment developers it to show that what is measured in a test or exam bears a valid relation to the desired knowledge and skills in the real world.
