i. Reliability – is the test consistent. If someone takes the test again are they going to make the same score? Something that doesn’t change over time. Scores are corrected to someone’s age so you should make the same score all years ii. Internal consistency – Do the items on the test correlate highly with one another. Trying to measure a certain construct you want everything to go together and everything goes with the intelligence thing. iii. Inter-judge reliability – refers to the extent to which different people using the same test will get the same score. Shouldn’t matter who gives you the test or where. Shouldn’t affect your score. iv. Validity – it the test measuring what you are suppose to be measuring. Suppose to be measuring intelligence. Is in measuring the construct in question. v. Content validity – the questions have to do with a person’s intelligence. vi. Criterion-related validity – does this test score actually predict what we think it should predict. g.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
