Abstract
With so many Reports being generated by tests there is a need to consider the validity and principles that maximize the appropriate interpretations that users make from these reports. It is argued that the validity of reports is a function of the users correct and appropriate inferences and/or actions about the test takerís performance based on the scores from the test. The paper presents possible empirical studies to provide such evidence, and introduces a series of 15 principles that aims to assist in maximizing the accuracy and appropriateness of interpretations of Reports.
