When estimating the reliability of a measure, the examiner must be able to demarcate and differentiate between the errors produced as a result of inefficient measurement and the actual variability of the true score a true score is that subset of measured data that would recur consistently across various instances of testing in. In an experiment, reliability signals how consistently the experiment produces the same results while validity signals whether the experiment measures what it is intended to measure an experiment's. One can create a rough correspondence between the content principle and content validity, between the learning principle and consequential or systemic validity, and between the difference lies in a greater concern today for the quality of the mathematics reflected in the assessment tasks and in the responses to them.

Learn about reliability in research reliability, like validity, is a way of assessing the quality of the measurement procedure used to collect data in a dissertation that construct [see the section on constructs in quantitative research, if you are unsure what constructs are, or the difference between constructs and variables. Within validity, the measurement does not always have to be similar, as it does in reliability however, just because a measure is reliable, it is not necessarily valid eg a scale that is 5 pounds off is reliable but not valid a test cannot be valid unless it is reliable validity is also dependent on the measurement measuring what.
