Annotation:

 

This dense chapter includes professional guidelines, issues, steps, and multiple methods for setting performance standards. The setting of performance standards for simulation, especially in the case of high-stakes testing, is serious business and this chapter situates the reader to this reality. The authors tackle the issues of judgment, validity, and the qualifications of standard-setting panelists in addition to legal issues. While practical, this chapter is not for the beginning student of evaluation.
