What is validating

In the context of organizations and their use of assessments in the hiring process we are often referring to criterion-related validation.

If you are sincere in presenting standardized pages to the public, test them with several validators.

The World Wide Web Consortium sets the standards and also hosts a variety of web page validators.

Well using my previous logic I just told you, this plan sounds perfect.

However, the other thing to consider is to ensure that the assessment puts people in the right category (high or low) over the course of hundreds and even thousands of candidates.

Doing so can cause your application or the operating system to stop responding.

IPTV service quality for thousands of individual subscribers under real-world triple play network conditions -- allowed Juniper to validate the performance of its IPTV and Multiplay solutions in a highly scaled and dynamic network environment.

If you’re just getting started with employee assessments, you might have heard the term validation being used when discussing selection systems.

When completing performance evaluations they may rate the individual higher to ensure that he/she gets a raise, but if the ratings are for research purposes only the supervisor will be less likely to skew the ratings. This would clearly mean that the assessment was doing its job, right? Because if I then gave that same assessment to the bottom 3 performers and they also got a perfect score, it would mean the assessment was doing nothing.

The assessment would have no ability to differentiate between bottom and top performers.

Philosophers of science are concerned with valid ways of knowing and ways of validating that which is known.
