Dear all,
Validity is defined as "the degree to which a test measures what it is supposed to measure". 
How can fit to the Rasch model be evidence of validity?
Can't we have a say, anxiety scale that perefctly fits the Rasch model but does not actually measure anxiety? 
How does Rasch analysis guarantee that a test actually test what it should test?
