Assessment and Evaluation

Assessment and Evaluation

The reliability of an assessment tool is the extent to which it measures learning consistently. The validity of an assessment tool is the extent by which it measures what it was designed to measure. For example, an assessment of the sequence of events in a story would consistently measure a student’s ability to retell a story in chronological order. It would have reliability as an assessment tool. However, if the standard for instruction was making inferences, it would not be a valid measure of that standard.
