Although Baddeley (1968) reported reasonably high test-retest reliability for his test, the AGARD version differs significantly enough from it to warrant establishment of its own reliability; this appears in Table 1, along with other test reliabilities.
No validity evidence exists for the AGARD version of the grammatical reasoning test, but Baddeley (1968) reported a correlation of .
Much is known about the specific tests making up the AGARD battery in terms of the information-processing models and theorizing that underlie them, as well as the effects of trial length, sequencing, and so on (Schlegel & Gilliland, 1992).
In order to ascertain construct validity, it becomes necessary to examine the relationship between the AGARD tests and the most representative set of these primary factors.
It is for this reason that the AGARD battery is validated against the CAB.
Although a total of 20 tests make up the CAB, only 15 of these were used in the study; the remaining five were considered unlikely to add any further insight into the nature of the AGARD battery.
In the second session participants were group-tested on the AGARD battery, this time on individual IBM-compatible machines.
Almost every conceivable variable associated with each AGARD task was measured and recorded.
A simple structure rotated factor analysis of the correlation between variables was conducted using the derived AGARD measures.
Along with a number of the AGARD measures, CAB-Cs, CAB-P, and CAB-W do have moderate to high loadings on Factor 1.
With the exception of MTH, all other AGARD measures load negligibly on this factor.
