Scrutinizing psychological tests: Measurement equivalence and equivalent relations with external variables are the central issues

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Uses the concepts of measurement equivalence and equivalence of relations with external variables to clarify the central issues in scrutinizing psychological tests and their fairness to ethnic and cultural minority groups. The basic ideas, results, and implications are described using these concepts. The criticisms of this article by P. Bobko and J. F. Kehoe (see record 1983-24733-001) are shown to be based on an incorrect premise. (5 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
