Concordance: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

A long, long time ago, a group of people known as “equaters” ruled the earth. The equaters were so named because they were proponents of the practice of equating-the linking of scores across (nearly) parallel test forms, namely forms built to the same specifications. The equaters were a powerful group of people. They made the rules, and through the use of theory and assumptions, they intimidated nonequaters to ensure that score linkages would be conducted only between alternate forms of the same test.
