  • Assessing Internal Validity
    • Face validity
      • Where a behaviour appears at first sight to represent what is being measured.
      • Determined by the researcher by 'eye-balling' the test or measure or by passing it on to an expert to check.
    • Concurrent Validity
      • Where performance on one measure correlates highly with performance on another measure of the same variable, recognised + well-established test.
      • Using Spearman's Rho or Pearson's r to analyse the data, a strong positive correlation (+.80) suggests that the new test has high concurrent validity.
