Criterion Validity

Does the measure produce results that correspond with a superior one?

Does the measure correspond with another known/valid measure?

Objective: A program leader wants to know the quality of articles that students produce in a Wikipedia Education Program.

1. Very poor criterion validity: Program leader relies only on self-report of respondents.

2. Poor criterion validity: Program leader measures the number of good articles as the only measurement for quality.

3. Better criterion validity: Number of good articles and compares this to peer or teacher assessment of student's work.
