  • A measure's ability to correlate or vary directly with a measure of the same construct or indirectly with a measure of a different but related construct that has been previously validated. Therefore, concurrent validity is determined by comparing a new test with one that has already been demonstrated to be valid or acknowledged to be the “gold standard.” Concurrent validity is often calculated by obtaining the correlation coefficient between the results of the two measures (the new and the already accepted measures) administered to the same population. For example, if you are developing a new test of intelligence, you may compare it with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), a previously validated test of intelligence.
