In the illustrations just given, we might then question the validity of the therapist's observation made at the patient's home. In addition to the criterion being valid, it must also be reliable. In fact, the upper bound of the validity coefficient can be estimated using the following equation: ry/ = VCrxx) . Cryy) [6] where ryX' is the upper bound of the validity coefficient, rxx is the reliability of the predictor, and ryy is the reliability of the criterion. 42. Being able to estimate the maximum value of the validity coeffi­ cient prior to conducting the validity study is critical.

A readable reference is Pedhazur (1982). Since criterion-related validation is based on using correlation coefficient (usually the pearson produc moment correlation coefficient if the predictor and crite rion are both continuous variables), then the issues t consider with this form of validity are those that impact th correlation coefficient. For example, the range of individua scores on the predictor or criterion can be limited, th relationship between the predictor and criterion may not b linear, or the sample size may be too small.

Standard designs are one-way or factorial ANOVA designs that are crossed, and the sample size is equal in all cells. Other nonstandard designs (unbalanced in terms of sample size, or not all levels are crossed) would required specialized programs. Crick and Brennan (1982) have developed the program GENOVA, and a version for IBM-compatible computers is available (free of charge), which will facilitate the analysis of standard and nonstan­ dard ANOVA-based designs. It is not possible within a chapter devoted to "psycho­ metric methods in general" to be able to provide the details needed to implement a generalizability study.
