Convergent Validity

Convergent validity refers to the degree to which scores on a test correlate with (or are related to) scores on other tests that are designed to assess the same construct. For example, if scores on a specific form a aggressiveness test are similar to people's scores on other aggressiveness tests, then convergent validity is high (there is a positively correlation between the scores from similar tests of aggressiveness).
