The Progressive Matrix of Validity (Messick, 1989) conceivedto control the quality of the evaluationto guarantee that the results of the evaluation are precise to assure that the interpretations of the results are fairSlide3
1. Qualities of test usefulness definitions questions 2. Creating a valid test3. Discussion and follow-up questionsSlide4
seeks to ascertain that the results of an evaluation are similarmeasures the coherence of results from one evaluation to anotherverifies the variation between results in different evaluationsa minimal level of reliability is determined by the contextSlide7
Is this evaluation reliable?
does the evaluation allow for comparison between test-takers?does the evaluation allow for comparison with other groups of test-takers in the same session, in different sessions?Slide8
a measurement by which the results of an evaluation can be interpreted as an indicator of the ability that the evaluation is measuringis said to exist if the results of the evaluation are valid in a specific context and can be generalized (valid in another similar, but different context)Slide10
Does this evaluation measure the correct construct?
does the evaluation actually evaluate the desired ability?what other abilities are measured?Slide11
the measure and the type of individual characteristics the test-taker uses when completing the tasks of the evaluationincludes a) the goal b) the specific group being evaluated c) the specific context of the evaluationSlide16
Is the evaluation interactive?
does the evaluation reflect the classroom activities? does the evaluation lead the test-taker to use what has been taught and learned?Slide17
the effects of the evaluation on a) society (employers), b) educational systems (administrators, teachers) and c) other stakeholders (parents and test-takers)the consequences of the evaluation must be evaluated for each stakeholderSlide19
What is the impact of the evaluation?
how are the results of the test used?is anyone affected negatively by the evaluation?who benefits from the evaluation?Slide20
You need to determine an evaluation for the following list of words: to devour, to dirty, to imbibe, to purchase, to relish, to swallow, to savour, to scorch, to slip, to taste,Slide26
The class is an intermediate 4-skills ESL class with 23 students.While listening to a text which included these ten words, take-takers were asked to answer comprehension questions. The 10 words were listed and defined due to their level of presumed difficulty.The teacher also orally explained the meaning of these words and answered any questions.Slide27
Is the text useful?
does the evaluation allow for comparison between test-takers and groups over time? (Reliability)does the evaluation actually evaluate the desired ability? Do other abilities intervene? (Construct validity)Slide28
Is the text useful?
does the evaluation reflect the test-taker’s present day or future reality? (Authenticity)does the evaluation lead the test-taker’s to use what has been taught and learned? (Interactiveness)Slide29
Is the text useful?
what is the effect of the evaluation? (Impact)is the evaluation easy to administer? (Practicality)Slide30
