con·cur·rent va·lid·i·ty

an index of criterion-related validity used to predict performance in a real-life situation given at about the same time as the test or procedure; the extent to which the index from one test correlates with that of a nonidentical test or index; for example, how well a score on an aptitude test correlates with the score on an intelligence test.

concurrent validity

validity of a test or a measurement tool that is established by simultaneously applying a previously validated tool or test to the same phenomenon, or data base, and comparing the results. Concurrent validity is achieved if the results are highly correlated (the same or similar) at a statistically significant level. See also validity.

Concurrent validity specifically measures the degree to which a particular test correlates with a previously validated test of the same phenomenon or construct (Rust & Golombok, 1989), that is, the evidence of construct validity based upon a relationship with other variables (American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, & National Council on Measurement in Education, 1999).
