- DOT-RFC Battery demonstrates a 5/5 for construct validity (2,3).
- DOT-RFC Battery demonstrates moderate to good content validity (2,3).
- DOT-RFC Battery demonstrates Test-Re test reliability and Intra rater reliability (1, 4).
- DOT-RFC battery demonstrates some predictive validity in the “real work world.”(2).
Note: 5/5 = Validity, with sufficient detail to enable examination of the results, is reported and published in a peer-reviewed forum (i.e., peer-reviewed journal).
WebFCE (DOT-RFC) showed excellent face/content Validity (5/5) and construct validity (5/5).
