Does "validity" in educational testing mean the same as "validity" in
employment testing (or psychological testing in general)? If the
current APA Standards are "flawed" or even "useless," it's possible that
someone is trying to justify something that is not valid under
traditional concepts of validity. Maybe the APA Standards need to be
revised, maybe not, depending on the scientific evidence to support the
proposed changes.
