In recent years, institutions of higher education have implemented assessment systems designed to gather evidence of student learning, achievement of program and institutional outcomes, and areas in need of improvement. Due to the impact of decisions made on the basis of assessment results, it is crucial that these assessment systems yield results that are valid and reliable. That is, they should measure what they are supposed to measure; the results should be dependable and consistent; and the inferences and actions derived from assessment results must be appropriate and accurate. However, validity and reliability are not inherent features of assessments or assessment systems and must be monitored continuously throughout the design and implementation of an assessment system. Research studies of a theoretical or empirical nature addressing methodology for ensuring and testing validity and reliability in the higher education assessment process, results of validity and reliability studies, and novel approaches to the concepts of validity and reliability in higher education assessment are all welcome. To be most helpful in this academic exchange, empirical studies should be clear and explicit about their methodology so that others can replicate or advance their research.
