On the 1st of February, a workshop on validity/validation of psychological
measures was held. It was presented by Matúš Adamkovič. After a short general introduction to the topic of measurement in behavioural sciences and alternatives of conceptualization of the variables (i.e., formative model vs. reflective model vs. network model), the workshop continued with examples of practical applications of validation procedures and different caveats related to the process of validation of the (existing) scales. The workshop concluded by presenting a concept of the Slovak repository of psychological measures adapted to the Slovak language.
The following discussion was oriented on the application of the network approach to the conceptualization of psychological variables.
