I am taking a Nursing Research class
On an assignment we have to pick the correct
term from a list of word choices. Statement is "A researcher develops a new instrument to measure coping skills and conducts a pilot study to compare the new tool with an existing tool that measures this concept"
▪︎ I had picked the term Reliability from the choice list (since my understanding of Reliability definition is its concern for comparibility, precision, reproducibility then thought now it woud be Convergent validity becasue its two scales measuring the same concept but i think its supposed to be administered at the same time and positively correlated)
Now I am back to Reliability as answer...please Help
▪︎Appreciate the help and input. Thanks
