How Do Student Ratings Measure Up to a New Validity Framework?

John C. Ory, Katherine Ryan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors examine student ratings within a new framework that emphasizes six distinct aspects of validity: content, substantive, structural, generalizability, external, and consequential. They conclude that greater attention should be directed toward consequential validity, particularly the matters of how ratings are used on today's campuses and what happens as a result.
