Resumen Background: Validity evidence based on response processes was fi rst introduced explicitly as a source of validity evidence in the latest edition of Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing. In this paper, we present the theory, the relationship with other sources of validity evidence, and the methods available for validation studies aimed at obtaining validity evidence about response processes. Method: A comprehensive review of the literature along with theoretical and practi...

Background: Numerous studies have indirectly demonstrated changes in the content of respondents’ QoL appraisal process over time by revealing response-shift effects. This is the first known study to qualitatively examine the assumption of consistency in the content of the cognitive processes underlying QoL appraisal over time. Specific objectives are to examine whether the content of each distinct cognitive process underlying QoL appraisal is (dis)similar over time and whether patterns of (dis)s...

Objective: Response shift is generally associated with a change in the meaning of test scores, impeding the comparison of repeated measurements. Still, different researchers have different views of response shift. From a measurement perspective, response shift can be considered as bias in the measurement of change, whereas from a more conceptual perspective, it can be considered as bias in the explanation of change. We propose definitions to accommodate both interpretations of response shift. St...

The assessment of change in patient-reported outcomes is hindered by the fact that there are different types of change. Besides ‘true’ change, different types of response shift, such as recalibration, reprioritization, and reconceptualization, may occur. We describe how structural equation modeling can be used to detect response shifts and to measure true change.

This article describes the models and methods that cognitive psychologists and survey researchers use to evaluate and experimentally test cognitive issues in questionnaire design and subsequently improve self-report instruments. These models and methods assess the cognitive processes underlying how respondents comprehend and generate answers to self-report questions. Cognitive processing models are briefly described. Non-experimental methods – expert cognitive review, cognitive task analysis, fo...

Patients confronted with a life-threatening or chronic disease are faced with the necessity to accommodate to their illness. An important mediator of this adaptation process is 'response shift' which involves changing internal standards, values and the conceptualization of quality of life (QOL). Integrating response shift into QOL research would allow a better understanding of how QOL is affected by changes in health status and would direct the development of reliable and valid measures for asse...
