NSSE's Psychometric Portfolio
The psychometric portfolio is a collection of evidences developed by NSSE to support the use and interpretation of NSSE results. The studies included in the portfolio address different facets of the survey and its potential uses and interpretations. Studies are organized into six areas based on the validity evidences as described by AERA, APA, and NCME’s 2014 Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing: (a) Survey Content, (b) Response Process, (c) Internal Structure, (d) Relations to Other Variables, and (e) Consequential Validity Evidence. While NSSE is not a cognitive test, the principles outlined in the Standards are well-suited to validating the use of NSSE survey measures.
