Construct validity

The extent to which a test or procedure appears to measure a higher order, inferred theoretical construct, or trait in contrast to measuring a more limited, specific dimension; e.g., a sychrony in the scores on the stanford-binet test, on a test of information processing, and the rate of glucose metabolism in the brain all are indices of intelligence.
