Assignment: Reliability And Validity Matrix
For each of the tests of reliability and validity listed on the matrix, prepare a 50- to 100-word description of the test’s application. Describe what conditions these reliability types would be used for as well as when they would be inappropriate. Then, for each test, prepare a 50- to 100-word description of the strengths and a 50- to 100-word description of the weaknesses.
