Many of us have or will publish the results of surveys, assessments, tests, etc., even if we just attach them to an article on our department’s latest innovation. Similarly, many of us hold religiously to various standards (whether through intrinsic or instrumental motivations). It is therefore disappointing that so many of use are ignorant of the standards that govern the development and use of the psychometric instruments we use in our research. Issues of “reliability” and “validity” are rarely addressed in our literature and, when they are, often exemplify popular misconceptions that have been corrected in current standards. In this informal letter, I don’t ask that everyone become a measurement guru, but that we strive to better understand the tools we use in our research.
