Alternative Method
A method of calculating reliability by repeating different but equivalent measures at two or more points in time.
Construct Validity
Validity demonstrated for a measure by showing that it is related to the measure of another concept.
Content Validity
Validity demonstrated by ensuring that the full domain of a concept is measured
Face Validity
Validity asserted by arguing that a measure corresponds closely to the concept it is designed to measure.
