  • The degree to which the results of a test predict or agree with a criterion measure to which it, theoretically, should be similar.

For example, a college admission test has good criterion validity if it directly correlates with college grades or some other measure of college performance. There are four types of criterion validity depending on the criteria used as the standard for judgment: predictive validity, concurrent validity, convergent validity, and discriminant validity.
