    You are right.

    Good tests require certain qualities.

    I. Objectivity indicates consistency among scorers, minimal scorer bias (r approaches +1 and is >. 90). Contrast with subjective evaluation, e.g., term papers.

    II. Reliability indicates the consistency of scores when give to same individuals (r approaches +1 and is >.90). It requires good level of objectivity.

    A. Test-retest indicates stability over time.

    B. Equivalent/alternate form indicates consistency over various forms of the same test .

    C. Split-half ) indicates consistency within a test (scores from even vs. odd items).

    III. Validity means that a test "measures what it claims to measure." Although valid test needs to be reliable, reliability does not ensure validity (IQ vs. height, table with rubber yardstick examples). Valid if it correlates with criterion measure (ACT scores vs. grades example).

    IV. Standardization involves two aspects.

    A. Tests run with same procedures and conditions each time given.

    B. The above allows the use of norms, comparison standards used to judge a specific score.

    I hope this additional information helps.
