- examines the extent to which scores on the measure are not related to scores that measure some other unrelated construct
- The level of certainty that the true score falls within a specific range. The smaller the range the less the certainty. If intervals between two groups do not overlap you can infer differences based on the data
- super long term cross sectional design that used used to trace differences in the population over time when given the same survey

5 True/False questions
Time sampling (food example) → observing people eat for a 10 minute period
Internal consistency → the extent to which observations may be generalized (depends on how behavior is sampled)
Four methods for obtaining interviews → mail surveys, personal interviews, telephone interviews, and internet surveys
interobserver reliability → Test in which participants receive the same score when tested at different times it means it is consistent
Situation Sampling (food example) → observe people eating in cafeterias, nice resturaunts, fast food resteuarants ect. and record what ppl eat
