Abstract: Comments on the debate between E. R. Harcum (see record 1989-31713-001) and W. Branch (see record 1990-13759-001) regarding the assumption that 2 tests measure the same construct because they correlate moderately highly with each other. Although 2 highly correlated measures do assess the same underlying construct, they may not be interchangeable due to their respective psychometric properties.
