Alignment is a necessary condition of the theory of action of standards-based reform; indeed, the Title I statute requires state assessments to “be aligned with the State's challenging content and performance standards.”.
Test-retest reliability is a measure of reliability obtained by administering the same test twice over a period of time to a group of individuals. The scores from Time 1 and Time 2 can then be correlated in order to evaluate the test for stability over time.

it is possible to create a highly reliable test that lacks validity. Reliability is important in the design of assessments because no assessment is truly perfect.
A test produces an estimate of a student’s “true” score, or the score the student would receive if given a perfect test; however, due to imperfect design, tests Author: Ben Rubin.
suggests using a test validation model to examine their reliability and validity. Validation begins with an interpretive argument for inferences or actions based on value-added scores. That argument addresses (a) the meaning of the scores themselves — whether they measure the intended construct; (b) their generalizability — whether the results are stable from year to year or using different student tests File Size: KB.
