Annotation:

 

This handy little volume is a great resource for anyone interested in measurement and the prospects of designing or assessing measurement instruments. The thorough, but readable sections on reliability, validity, and scale development guidelines are very practical.

The author does use the ‘old’ types of validity: content, criterion-related, and construct. So, while the concepts are useful, I recommend sticking with the ‘new’ types of validity as presented by the American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, and National Council on Measurement in Education (1999).
