Abstract

This article provides a brief overview of functional behavior assessment and contrasts and compares functional behavior assessment and traditional psychological assessment. Messick's (1995) theory of construct validity is presented and then applied to the evaluation of the validity of functional behavior assessment measures. Finally, implications and guidelines of current construct validity theory are presented for school psychologists developing and/or using FBA measures and procedures.
