Abstract
The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate how measures of validity can be used in the selection of screening tests. Both logical and statistical validity approaches are discussed. The analysis dealt primarily with a statistical method which assessed the usefulness of a test cutoff score in predicting task performance. A numerical example is included to illustrate the steps which could be used to maximize the confidence in the selection of a valid test.
