Validity. Educational assessment should always have a clear purpose. Nothing will be gained from assessment unless the assessment has some validity for the purpose. For that reason, validity is the most important single attribute of a good test.

The validity of an assessment tool is the extent to which it measures what it was designed to measure, without contamination from other. Parallel forms reliability is a measure of reliability obtained by administering different versions of an assessment tool (both versions must contain items that probe the same construct, skill, knowledge base, etc.) to the same group of individuals.

The scores from the two versions can then be correlated in order to evaluate the consistency of. Validity and reliability of assessment methods are considered the two most important characteristics of a well-designed assessment procedure.

Validity refers to the degree to which a method assesses what it claims or intends to assess. The different types of validity include: Validity Definition content.

Rather, it refers to the accuracy of score-based inferences about test takers. Once educators grasp the idea that these inferences are made by people who can, of course, make mistakes. Stobart (, p. 1) argued, “Assessment, in the form of tests and examinations, is a powerful activity which shapes how societies, groups and individuals understand themselves.” Gipps (, ) glossed that assessment entails—, “a wide range of methods for evaluating pupil performance and attainment including formal testing andFile Size: KB.

The assessment used needs to match the purpose of assessing. Formal or standardized measures should be used to assess overall achievement, to compare a student's performance with others at their age or grade, or to identify comparable strengths and weaknesses with peers.
