week three discussion measurement



Select a test you are interested in (perhaps for dissertation). What does the test measure (include name of test)?  If you were going to discuss the validity of the test, what would you look for in terms of:

1. Criterion-Related Validity (what behaviors or traits should correlate concurrently or predictively)?

2. Group Differences (what persons may be expected to differ on the trait)?

3. Convergent & Divergent Validity (what measures should correlate and not correlate)?
