Abstract

Validation is an argument for the interpretation of test scores. It is often the case that the validators do not formally consider how the various interactions that take place during the process of test item development, for example with the subject-matter experts (SMEs), may be influencing the results obtained. . . Every effort should be undertaken to more fully understand the impact the validator has on the validation process through the documentation of qualitative evidence regarding how the transactions between and among the validators and SMEs influence the data collection effort upon which interpretations of test scores are made.
