When the criterion is measured at the same time as the construct, criterion validity is referred to as concurrent validity; however, when the criterion is measured at some point in the future (after the construct has been measured), it is referred to as predictive validity (because scores on the measure have “predicted” a future outcome). In my last post I discussed three of the traditionally defined types of validity: criterion-related, content-related, and construct-related. A construct is a concept. Validity was traditionally subdivided into three categories: content, criterion-related, and construct validity (see Brown 1996, pp. ment of construct validity as we shall present it. Criterion validity. Out of these, the content, predictive, concurrent and construct validity are the important ones used in the field of psychology and education. The following six types of validity are popularly in use viz., Face validity, Content validity, Predictive validity, Concurrent, Construct and Factorial validity. Construct validity is the approximate truth of the conclusion that your operationalization accurately reflects its construct. The concept of construct validity is very well accepted. Four Types of Validation TI1e categories into which the Recommendations divide validity studies are: predictive validity, concurrent validity, content validity, and constrnct validity. Finally there is criterion related validity. The process of validation consisted of assessing construct validity, scale reliability and concurrent criterion validity, and undertaking a sensitivity analysis. Construct validity. Now I will talk about how your organization could undertake a study to investigate and demonstrate criterion-related validity. The construct- and criterion-related validity of the mini-CEX are supported by the findings outlined within the studies that were included in one or more of four group comparisons. 231-249). Central to this was confirmatory factor analysis to evaluate the structure of the NOTSS taxonomy. This type of evidence is really at the core of this book. In the classical model of test validity, construct validity is one of three main types of validity evidence, alongside content validity and criterion validity. We feel this is the both the core and the key to the MTQ48. Results: Some 255 consultant surgeons participated in the study. It is a measure of whether or not a score on the MTQ48 is associated with an external measure. Indeed, in educational measurement circles, all three types of validity discussed above (content, criterion-related, and construct validity) are now taken to be different facets of a single unified form of construct validity. Increasing the number of different measures in a study will increase construct validity provided that the measures are measuring the same construct Content validity includes any validity strategies that focus on the content of the test. A clearly specified research question should lead to a definition of study aim and objectives that set out the construct and how it will be measured. These are discussed below: Type # 1. Second, I make a distinction between two broad types: translation validity and criterion-related validity. Much of our work has concentrated on performance measures.
