Title: Construct Validity and Cognitive Diagnostic Assessment
Author: Embretson, Susan E. ; Yang, Xiangdong
Abstract: Cognitive diagnostic assessment (CDA) is increasingly a major focus in psychological and educational measurement. Instead of inferring a general response tendency or behavior consistency of an examinee over a target domain of measurement, diagnostic assessment results provide a detailed account of the underlying cognitive basis of the examinee's performance by mining the richer information that is afforded by specific response patterns.
