    State testing programs report evidence of test validity. Come hear how extraneous factors hidden in the assessment process could be threats to test validity, including: rater-drifts in scoring constructed-response items; inappropriate use of intact forms; underestimated sampling errors for a random cluster sample making type II error; and a post-equating design used for designing pre-equating forms.
