Article 1:
Reliability, Validity, and Fairness in Classroom and Large-scale Standardized Assessments
Hunan University, China
Ningbo Polytechnic, China

This article discusses the three major indicators of quality of an educational assessment. In an educational assessment, reliability, validity, and fairness are the three major indicators of its quality. A high-quality assessment, therefore, should be reliable, valid, and fair (AERA et al., 1999; Joint Committee on Testing Practices, 2004; Joint Advisory Committee, 1993; Popham, 2008, 2011). This article first explains the concepts of reliability, validity, and fairness in educational assessments. It then discusses fairness issues in both classroom and large-scale standardized assessment contexts. Finally, this article explores the relationships among reliability, validity, and fairness.
