    However, there is little evidence that test qualities are systematically evaluated in interpreter certification testing. In an attempt to address this problem, this paper proposes a theoretical argument-based validation framework for interpreter certification performance tests so as to guide testers in carrying out systematic validation research.   The search for a validation framework that is theoretically sound but more accessible to practitioners continues. The major development of an argument-based approach to test validation in education measurement (Kane ; Kane et al. ) has inspired parallel advancements in language testing, represented by Bachman (), Bachman and Palmer and Chapelle et al. ().
