Whenever a test or other measuring device is used as part of the data collection process, the validity and reliability of that test is important.  Just as we would not use a math test to assess verbal skills, we would not want to use a measuring device for research that was not truly measuring what we purport it to measure.  After all, we are relying on the results to show support or a lack of support for our theory and if the data collection methods are erroneous, the data we analyze will also be erroneous.................................................................................................................................................................................................
