Criterion-related Validity (Overview)

The Uniform Guidelines define criterion-related validity as, "Data showing that a selection procedure is predictive of, or significantly correlated with, important elements of job performance.”

Criterion-related validity studies can be conducted in one of two ways: using a predictive model or a concurrent model. A predictive model is conducted when applicant test scores are correlated to subsequent measures of job performance (e.g., six months after the tested applicants are hired). A concurrent model is conducted bygiving a selection procedure to incumbents who are currently on the job and then correlating these scores to current measures of job performance (e.g., performance review scores, supervisor ratings, etc.).
