Moreover, the relationships between the dimensions and the single underlying factor were strongly consistent (i.e., approximately equal in magnitude). In sum, the five dimensions are representative of a single underlying construct, and the dimensions relate to the underlying construct in a consistent manner, these findings align with the design and current rating protocol of the ASLPI.
Preliminary Validity Study Conclusion:
Those who develop and utilize tests are responsible for demonstrating and documenting the effectiveness of their assessments. Effectiveness is typically demonstrated by providing evidence of the reliability and validity of the assessment's use for specific purposes and for specific populations of test-takers. Given that the...
