Consensus, what consensus?

This session will examine the evolution of thinking on validity, from the early 20th century to the present day.


This session will examine the evolution of thinking on validity, from the early 20th century to the present day. It will attempt to identify the central tenets of modern validity theory and to determine how it departs from validity theory of yesteryear. Scrutiny of a range of recent reports will reveal differences of opinion from within the ‘mainstream’ camp. Participants will be encouraged to consider whether certain elements of the supposed consensus are more central than others and to form their own opinion on the extent to which different versions of the ‘mainstream’ account are compatible.
