– Institution B Reliability is Kr 20=.92 Validity r=.49

– Kubizn (2000) – if predicting, there should be predictive validity

– Borich (2000) – .82 to .95 are acceptable reliabilty coefficients

– Anastasi (1998) – .20 to .30 may justify inclusion of a test in a selection program

– given two students with the same total scores the differentiation can be the mean z-scores

– Dr. Alexa Abrenica now on the podium as a reactor

– Dr. Abrenica – stating that the duration for the test-retest is more important than the r

– Dr. Abrenica – why use CSAT when you have MAT?

– Dr. Abrenica on Atienza II – paper indicated inappropriateness of comparing testing programs but still it compared the 2 🙂

– Dr. Abrenica – surmise that what is true for Region I might be true for everywhere else in the Philippines
