Criterion Validity Predictive

     

This method for assessing the validity of a test involves demonstrating that the test meaningfully predicts some real-world criterion. For example, a valid test of abstract reasoning ability intelligence would be expected to predict academic performance, particularly in science and mathematics. Moreover, there are two types of criterion validity - predictive validity and concurrent validity. Predictive validity assesses whether a test is capable of predicting an agreed criterion which will be available at some future time, e.g. can a test of fluid intelligence predict future GCSE maths results.
