The concept of validity
• Are we measuring what we think we are measuring?
• Validity is the ability of an instrument to measure
what it is designed to measure.
• Key questions;
– Who decides whether an instrument is measuring what it is
supposed to measure?
– How can it be established that an instrument is measuring what
it supposed to measure?

Face and content validity
• The judgement that an instrument is measuring what it is
supposed to.
– primarily based upon the logical link between questions and
objectives of the study.
• Advantage: easy to apply
• Face validity – establishment of logical link between
questions and objectives of study
• Content validity – assessment if items and questions
covers the full range of the issue being measured.
– Judge which statements or questions represent the issue they
are supposed to measure

Face and content validity (cont.)
• Problems;
– Judgement is based upon subjective logic
– The extent to which question reflect the objectives of a study
may differ.

Concurrent and predictive validity
• Predictive validity – judged by how well an instrument
can forecast an outcome.
• Concurrent validity – judged by how well an instrument
compares with a second assessment concurrently done.
8
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
Construct validity
• Construct validity – determined by ascertaining the
contribution of each construct to the total variance
observed in a phenomenon.
• Based upon statistical procedure.
• The greater the variance attributable to the construct, the
higher the validity of the instrument.
9
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
The concept of reliability
• Reliability is if a research tool is consistent and
stable hence predictable and accurate.
• The greater the degree of consistency and stability in a
research instrument, the greater the reliability.
• A scale or test is reliable to the extent that repeat
measurements made by it under constant conditions will
give the same result.
• Reliability is the degree of accuracy or precision in the
measurements made by a research instrument.
– The lower the degree of ‘error’ in an instrument, the higher the
reliability.

Factors affecting reliability
12
The wording of questions
The physical setting
The respondent’s or
interviewer mode
The regression effect
The nature of interaction
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
Methods of determining the reliability
• Internal consistency procedures – items or questions
measuring the same phenomenon, should produce
similar results irrespective of their number in an
instrument
– The split-half technique
• External consistency procedures – compare findings
from two independent process of data collection with
each other as a means of verifying the reliability of the
measure
– Test/retest
– Parallel form of the same test
13
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
Split-half technique
• To correlate half of the items with the other half in a
research instruments
• Questions are divided in half in such way that any two
questions intended to measure the same aspect fall into
different halves.
• The scores obtained by administering the two halves are
correlated.
• Reliability is calculated using product moment correlation
between scores
14
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
Test/ retest (repeatability test)
• An instrument is administered once, and then again,
under the same or similar conditions.
• The ratio between test and retest score is an indication
of the reliability of the instrument
– The greater the value of the ratio, the higher the reliability of the
instrument
• Advantage - it permits the instrument to be compared
with itself.
• Disadvantage – a respondent may recall the responses
that they gave in the first round
– Overcome by increasing the time span between two tests
15
S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N
Parallel forms of the same test
• Two instrument intended to measure the same
population is constructed and administered to two similar
population.
• The results obtained from one test is compared with
another
– If similar, the instrument is reliable.
• Advantage – does not suffer from the problem of recall
and time lapse between two test is not required.
• Disadvantage – need to construct two instrument instead
of one.

S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Face and content validity • The judgement that an instrument is measuring what it is supposed to. – primarily based upon the logical link between questions and objectives of the study. • Advantage: easy to apply • Face validity – establishment of logical link between questions and objectives of study • Content validity – assessment if items and questions covers the full range of the issue being measured. – Judge which statements or questions represent the issue they are supposed to measure 6
  • 7. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Face and content validity (cont.) • Problems; – Judgement is based upon subjective logic – The extent to which question reflect the objectives of a study may differ. 7

S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Concurrent and predictive validity • Predictive validity – judged by how well an instrument can forecast an outcome. • Concurrent validity – judged by how well an instrument compares with a second assessment concurrently done. 8
  • 9. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Construct validity • Construct validity – determined by ascertaining the contribution of each construct to the total variance observed in a phenomenon. • Based upon statistical procedure. • The greater the variance attributable to the construct, the higher the validity of the instrument. 9
  • 10. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N The concept of reliability • Reliability is if a research tool is consistent and stable hence predictable and accurate. • The greater the degree of consistency and stability in a research instrument, the greater the reliability. • A scale or test is reliable to the extent that repeat measurements made by it under constant conditions will give the same result. • Reliability is the degree of accuracy or precision in the measurements made by a research instrument. – The lower the degree of ‘error’ in an instrument, the higher the reliability. 10

  • 13. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Methods of determining the reliability • Internal consistency procedures – items or questions measuring the same phenomenon, should produce similar results irrespective of their number in an instrument – The split-half technique • External consistency procedures – compare findings from two independent process of data collection with each other as a means of verifying the reliability of the measure – Test/retest – Parallel form of the same test 13
  • 14. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Split-half technique • To correlate half of the items with the other half in a research instruments • Questions are divided in half in such way that any two questions intended to measure the same aspect fall into different halves. • The scores obtained by administering the two halves are correlated. • Reliability is calculated using product moment correlation between scores 14
  • 15. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Test/ retest (repeatability test) • An instrument is administered once, and then again, under the same or similar conditions. • The ratio between test and retest score is an indication of the reliability of the instrument – The greater the value of the ratio, the higher the reliability of the instrument • Advantage - it permits the instrument to be compared with itself. • Disadvantage – a respondent may recall the responses that they gave in the first round – Overcome by increasing the time span between two tests 15
  • 16. S C H O O L O F N U T R I T I O N A N D D I E T E T I C S • U N I V E R S I T I S U L T A N Z A I N A L A B I D I N Parallel forms of the same test • Two instrument intended to measure the same population is constructed and administered to two similar population. • The results obtained from one test is compared with another – If similar, the instrument is reliable. • Advantage – does not suffer from the problem of recall and time lapse between two test is not required. • Disadvantage – need to construct two instrument instead of one. 16
