Face Validity

Face validity refers to the degree to which a measurement or piece of research is relevant - i.e. does it actually cover the concept or variable that is is trying to measure. Generally, face validity refers to whether a test 'looks like' it will work, as opposed to validity, which accurately shows whether the actual purpose of the research was fulfilled.
