EDU 602 EDU602 EDU/602 Week 2 Assignment Establishing Validity in Assessments

This assignment provides you with an opportunity to visually examine how to establish validity in assessments for online learning.

Step 1: Research techniques used to establish validity.
When the validity of an assessment is examined, we usually ask the question “Does the assessment measure was it was designed to measure?” If it does, then we would tend to say that it is a valid assessment. Because we often use data from assessments to make instructional decisions, revisions to training, or as a measure of what a student/employee has learned, it is important to have a basic 

understanding of the role validity plays in assessment. If placed in a situation where you are ask to create an assessment, you will want to make sure that what you create is valid.

Based on this week’s readings and presentations, locate an article in the Ashford Library that includes techniques for establishing validity in assessments for online learning. Your research should address and explain the following:

  1. Why validity is important for online learning. 
  2. The types of evidence used to establish validity. 
  3. The techniques, resources, and methods that are available to establish validity when designing.
    assessments for online learning. 
  4. The additional resources or methods that are available to validate an online assessment. 
  5. How you apply the types of evidence you listed above when assessing learners online. 

Step 2: Summary of your Findings.
Write a four to five page research paper that summarizes your findings from Step 1. Your paper should include:

  1. The types of evidence used to establish validity. 
  2. Why validity is important for online learning. 
  3. Techniques, methods, and resources that are available to establish validly. 
  4. How to determine whether online assessments are valid. 
  5. A minimum of three scholarly sources, other than the course materials or text, cited in APA
    format. 

Step 3: Save and submit your assignment.
When you have completed the assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy to your instructor. Depending on the system the course utilizes, assignments will either be submitted via the classroom Assignment Basket Assignment Basket Icon or Waypoint.
