interpretive validity, vertical scaling, and person fit with their practical implications for students, teachers, and downstream researchers. Examples include the relationship between scale scores and claims made based upon them; the connection between test performance and learning progressions; the consequences of scaling issues for effect size-based interpretations of growth; and the challenges of interpreting person fit statistics substantively.
