The interpretation involves an argument leading from the scores to score-based. For tests with higher stakes, such as those used for promotion or graduation decisions, those used for course grades, or those used in isola- tion for decisions, the scores must be reasonably reproducible (as demonstrated by high reliability) and evidence should be presented to demonstrate the accuracy of the test (e.g., showing how content outlines for the test match the inferences to be made).

Basically, empirical evidence is needed to establish the nature and degree of relationship between test scores and scores on the criterion measure. But the opening phrase of this paragraph assumes away the “criterion problem,” which is the most fundamental problem in criterion-related validation research.

In Lesson 11 we examined relationships between two categorical variables with the chi-square test of independence. In this lesson, we will examine the relationships between two quantitative variables with correlation and simple linear regression. Quantitative variables have numerical values with magnitudes that can be placed in a meaningful were first introduced to correlation and.

of an examinee’s score to this scale, the examinee’s raw score on the examination is determined, which is simplythe number of test items that the examinee answered correctly (e.g., out of ).

The raw score is then converted to a scale score, using a conversion formula. The availability of this information in test manuals encourages test users to apply confidence intervals in interpreting scores without having to calculate them.

However, the determination of whether or not the published figures are applicable and meaningful in each instance of test use still rests with the user. For example, in a national USA certification test in radiography, the same test or a different test form were assigned for the individuals that repeated the examination and indistinguishable score.
