Ohio Christian University Reliability and Validity Discussion

I’m studying for my Social Science class and need an explanation.

Reliability and Validity Discussion

Describe the concepts of reliability and validity.
It is easy to confuse reliability and validity. They are, in fact, very different concepts but tightly related, too! It is important to be able to differentiate between the two in statistics but understand how they are related as well. You can have a test that is reliable but not valid. It may reliably give you the same result every time. However, it may not do what it is supposed to do or test what it is supposed to test. That is validity. These concepts are heavily involved in psychological measurement which is the foundation for most social science research.

  • Although your milestone research project has not been formulated or approved just yet, discuss how you plan to address concerns with reliability and validity for your milestone project. Remember that a reliable measure is consistent. A valid measure gathers the data it is intended to gather.
  • In addition to this discussion, provide one example of how reliability and validity affect your spiritual life.
