4. Identify how you would maximize validity &amp. reliability of these measures. You must touch on at least 2 of the 4 types of validity and 2 of the 4 types of reliability.
The aim of good measurement is to avoid error component as much as possible, and this can be achieved by establishing validity and reliability measures. Validity is the measure of accuracy. to measure what really is to be measured. The content, criterion, or construct validity are types of validity. Validity can be established by the use of standardized or quality assured instruments of data. Finally, reliability measures the extent to which a measure is error-free (Dipboye, Smith, &amp. Howell, 1994). Pilot testing of instruments and reliability testing of data collected are some ways to ensure reliability.
