This year, Michael Kane will be coming to Lincoln to give a presentation titled "The Argument-based Approach to Validation."
Dr. Kane is holder of the Samuel J. Messick Chair in Test Validity at ETS, the first person to have received this honor. He is most renowned for his work in validity theory and practice and has written many articles and chapters on the subject, including the chapter “Validation” in the fourth edition of Educational Measurement.
In his lecture, Dr. Kane will discuss how explicit recognition of the inferences and assumptions underlying the interpretation and use of test scores can guide the process of validation by identifying which kinds of evidence are needed to evaluate the claims being made.
