Abstract

This commentary discusses a number of issues that build on Schmidt's (International Journal of Selection and Assessment, 20, 1-13 (2012)) perspective on content validity and cognitive tests. First, it elaborates on the relationship between the treatment of content validity in various professional standards and government guidelines. Second, it offers a differing perspective on the definition of 'construct' than that taken by Schmidt. Third, it elaborates on the settings in which content validity can and cannot be used to support the use of a given test in the cognitive ability domain.
