Abstract
The quality of education depends to a large extent on the quality of educational programs. Educational institutions develop educational programs to improve the quality of education. This involves not only monitoring changes that occur in society but also taking forecast-based steps to make educational programs predictive. The major tool for improving educational programs is student assessment. It, in turn, involves testing-the only truly practicable tool to evaluate knowledge, helping teachers assess and manage the effectiveness of instruction. For a test to assess a student's knowledge adequately, it should have the necessary characteristics. The most important of those are reliability and validity. Variables in educational tests, especially multilevel ones, often show nonlinear associations. Because of this, the use of correlation measures of association may lead to inaccurate-and sometimes incorrect-results. This paper proposes using correlation ratios to assess the validity and reliability of tests.
