Objectivity in Standardized Tests

 
Agustín Tristán López and Nancy Yahibé Pedraza Corpus
.Abstract

Objectivity is a needed attribute of standardized tests in different areas, such as health, social sciences and education, and in each one of the phases of the development of a test, from its initial definition to the interpretation of outcomes. Objectivity ensures fairness of the test from its design up to the appraisal of the judges or evaluators and on the treatment of results, grounded on five main properties: specificity, neutrality, independence, impartiality and impersonality. Objectivity is fundamental for the interpretation of the outcomes, eliminating or reducing the presence of stereotypes and preferences that produce several types of bias that may affect the ethical use of the results of the test. Objectivity should be the first attribute to consider in a standardized test, as it improves the definition of the traits to evaluate permitting the distinction of characteristics that are mistakenly associated with validity and reliability.
