AERA, APA, NCME JOINT STANDARDS FOR EDUCATIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING: ADVANCES AND VOIDS
Bracken, B., The College of William and Mary and Wasserman, J., George Mason University, USA
In 1999 the Joint Committee of AERA, APA, and NCME published the revised Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing. The revised Standards made important advances in some areas of test development, technical adequacy, applications, and ethics. Yet, the Standards remain largely aspirational in much of its language and could benefit from more specific and exact communication of expected outcomes. This presentation will address both advances and voids in the current Standards, and will make recommendations for new topics of consideration when the Standards are revised next.
