Various Types of Validity and Reliability by Mind Map: Various Types of Validity and Reliability

1. Validity

1.1. Predictive Validity

1.1.1. Typically seen with aptitude. This test is important in learning and assessment because it is the predictor of future behaviors in those examined

1.2. Content Validity

1.2.1. Examines content that is to be tested. Looks for errors to verify all information is correct and accurate.

1.3. Criterion Related Validity

1.3.1. Important in learning and assessment because test scores are correlated with an external criterion (Kubiszyn & Borich, 2013).

1.4. Concurrent Criterion

1.4.1. Capable of measuring multiple things on a test concurrently (at the same time). When learning and assessing it is important to be able to measure multiple test items concurrently.

1.5. Construct Validity

1.5.1. All assessments are given based on content and material learned and studied. Ensuring prepared assessments match learning objectives and outcomes.

1.6. Learning and Assessment

1.6.1. Components that can enhance the preparation, administration, and scoring in assessments.

2. Reliability

2.1. Alternative Form

2.1.1. Used to determine relevance in test scores when compared to one another. This is useful with learning and assessment when evaluating student progress.

2.2. Internal Consistencey

2.2.1. This is when all components of the assessment are in alignment with each other. All test items must match the learning objectives.

2.3. Test or Stability

2.3.1. Testing is administered on subject content and then after a period of time has passed, an additional test might be administered with information from the previous test to determine if the student is remaining stable in their overall scores.
