Item description

Jerald Novak: In order to have these tests be considered valid or appropriate, they have to do what is called a validation study. It’s important when you’re defending a case to see if the officer explained, and demonstrated, and scored the test properly, or if he violated any of the standard. If he violates the standard, then there’s no validation testing done on this modified version of the test which means that it’s just as much his guesses and the person’s guess to whether someone passed or failed the test. It’s critical that the tests are explained properly, demonstrated properly, and scored properly, and you’d be shocked how often one or more of those things is not done correctly.
