Abstract

For almost one hundred years, divergent views on the concept of validity have proliferated. Even today, the meaning of validity is heavily contested. Despite a century of accumulated scholarship, new definitions of validity continue to be proposed, and new 'types' of validity continue to be invented (see Newton and Shaw, 2013). Yet, against the backdrop of an evolving measurement and testing landscape and the increased use of assessments across scientific, social, psychological and educational settings, validity has remained "the paramount concept in the field of testing." (Fast and Hebbler, 2004, p.i).
