Carol A. Chapelle shows readers how to design validation research for tests of human capacities and performance. Any test that is used to make decisions about people or programs should have undergone extensive research to demonstrate that the scores are actually appropriate for their intended purpose. Argument-Based Validation in Testing and Assessment is intended to help close the gap between theory and practice, by introducing, explaining, and demonstrating how test developers can formulate the overall design for their validation research from an argument-based perspective.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Chapelle's "Argument-Based Validation in Testing and Assessment" is among the best-written texts on test validity. It is an up-to-date, cogent presentation from a logical - as opposed to strictly psychometric - perspective.
-- Shlomo Sawilowsky * Review *
This text address complex philosophical discussions related to validity and reliability in an accessible way. It models a way of thinking about assessment decisions that many of our students need to be successful in their future work!
