Validity And Reliability Of Large-scale And Local Classroom Assessments Paper.

Directions: Homework 1 is divided into two parts. Part 1 focuses on assessing validity and
reliability of large-scale assessments while Part 2 focuses on assessing validity and reliability in
local classroom assessments.
Part 1- Large-scale Assessments
1. Read pages 32-42 in the SOL Technical Report for 2014-2015 which is (Attached). Then
categorize each piece of provided validity and reliability evidence into one of the Sources
of Validity Evidence or Sources of Reliability Evidence discussed in the McMillan
textbook (Required is Chapter attached). Validity And Reliability Of Large-scale And Local Classroom Assessments Paper.For example, if the report talks about how
the SOL is positively related to performance on the SAT, this piece of evidence would
best fit into the Evidence Based on Relationships to Other Variables category. Be sure to
also include an explanation as to why y ou thik the piece of evidence fits into the
evidence category you have chosen.  Validity And Reliability Of Large-scale And Local Classroom Assessments Paper.

3. Think of written tests that you have taken in previous courses, and reflect on these
questions:
1. Have you ever taken a test that you believe had a poor sample of content?
2. Have you ever taken a test that was not aligned well with the objectives,
instructional materials (e.g., textbooks), and/or actual instruction. Briefly describe
such experiences. (worth 2.75 points)  Validity And Reliability Of Large-scale And Local Classroom Assessments Paper.
4. Using a test you described in # 3 above, discuss how your instructor could have collected
evidence of validity and reliability for the test. Specifically, in your response address
what Sources of Validity Evidence and Reliability Evidence would have been appropriate
and how he or she could have gone about collecting these pieces of validity and
reliability evidence. Be sure to clearly articulate your reasoning using support from the
course readings. (worth 2.75 points)
