The Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (AERA, APA, NCME, 2014) identifies professional standards, criteria, and recommendations for test developers and test publishers. One of those standards is to provide sufficient documentation that enables potential test users to evaluate the quality of a test, including evidence for the reliability and validity of test scores. Technical reports provide that documentation.
