Validity and Test Development

A review paper describes many published research studies on a particular topic. For this project, you will be critiquing an article that is a review paper (Mitchell, 2012) related to external validity of psychological research. External validity refers to the generalizability of results of a study and how well those results will hold up outside a laboratory setting in the real world.
Complete a three- to four-page paper that summarizes the main points and findings. Describe it in a scholarly (using critical thinking) manner, but also in a way that someone from outside the area can understand. Be sure to include the reference of the paper in your submission.
