Content Validity
Content validity is the simplest method to assess whether a test is valid. Establish content
validity by comparing the test items to the learning objectives. No statistical calculations are
used to establish content validity. If subject matter experts agree that the test items
measure their respective learning objectives, the test can be considered valid. The
usefulness of content validity is subject to the quality of the analysis and the subsequent
learning objectives as well as the thoroughness of the SME review of the test items.
Concurrent Validity
Concurrent validity of a test is when one test compares favorably with another, already
validated test. If there is already a valid measure (i.e., nationally recognized entrance exam)
of what is to be tested, determine the degree of association between the results of the
preestablished test and the test to be validated. To the extent that they are related, there is
an established level of concurrent validity. A statistical analysis is required to establish a
level of concurrent validity. Information on statistical analysis to determine concurrent
validity can be found in several commercially available textbooks on statistics.
