A Dialectic on Validity: Where We Have Been and Where We Are Going

A Dialectic on Validity: Where We Have Been and Where We Are Going Abstract It has been suggested that the primary issue in considerations of validity today is the discrepancy between currently accepted theory and the practice of validation. The reason for this discrepancy may be that although considerable discussion has taken place in educational measurement and psychometrics regarding changes in our conceptions of validity, that has not been the case more generally in the social and behavioral sciences. A dialectic on the current status of validity theory for social and behavioral scientists is presented to help bridge this gap. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of General Psychology Taylor & Francis
