Questions of educational and statistical validity raised by multiple assessment techniques are examined in terms of educational objectives, errors and distributions of scores. A method of scaling is proposed and its relation to normalizing procedures discussed in recent papers in this journal is indicated. A hypothetical situation provides the framework for the elaboration of the ideas presented. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
