Abstract:

Three kinds of generalizability are described generalizability of test content, generalizability of relationships such as are described by validity coefficients, and generalizability of test scores across varying conditions. All are deemed important in the construction and evaluation of work sample tests. A special problem is determining the limits of generalizability it is suggested that the research designs of generalizability theory can be applied in some cases to determining the limits of generalizability of criterion-related validities. This report, the last of four, is written for psychologists and others interested in theories of testing.
