skewed distribution
In probability theory and statistics, skewness is a measure of the asymmetry of the probability distribution of a real-valued random variable about its mean
Criterion-referenced scores
A criterion-referenced test is a style of test which uses test scores to generate a statement about the behavior that can be expected of a person with that score
Computerized adaptive testing is a form of computer-based test that adapts to the examinee's ability level
High-stakes testing
A high-stakes test is a test with important consequences for the test taker
ecological assessment
Ecological assessment implies the monitoring of ecological resources, to discover the current and changing conditions
construct
A construct in the philosophy of science is an ideal object, where the existence of the thing may be said to depend upon a subject's mind
Content validity
In psychometrics, content validity refers to the extent to which a measure represents all facets of a given construct
predictive validity
In psychometrics, predictive validity is the extent to which a score on a scale or test predicts scores on some criterion measure
