Validity and Test Use. New book from AERI's inaugural conference launched at the 2013 American Evaluation Association conference on October 17, 2013
Validity and Test Use examines the overlapping topics of validity, validation, and use of educational tests and test data in practice, policy, and evaluative contexts around the globe. This book addresses a range of validity issues typically encountered in high stakes testing contexts, searching for solutions to two questions: To what extent are popular uses of educational tests and assessment information in international environments, valid? And: What can be done to optimize validity internationally, and with it, fair and equitable assessment and evaluation practices? Reflecting perspectives of a prominent cadre of measurement and evaluation scholars and policy experts, the book offers new insights and frameworks for improving validity at the nexus of assessment design and use.
Featured Authors: Michael T. Kane, Adrie Visscher, Michael J. Feuer, and many others.
