write a summary report (400-600 words). In the report, explain the following terms in general — what do they mean?

Then explain how they apply to the Blirtatiousness Questionnaire — for instance, how would we establish convergent validity for the BQ? What would we use to assess predictive validity?

convergent validity

discriminant validity

criterion validity

predictive validity

Give examples from the data presented in the text as to how these types of validity were examined in the Blirt test and the meaning of the different graphs/figures.

Finally, think of another way, not mentioned in the reading, that experimenters could test the validity of the Blirt test. What type of validity would you be testing? What would you expect the results of your validity test to be? Explain
