Assessment designers responsible for high-stakes testing programs are obliged to undertake a series of test validation procedures to meet their legal obligations to all assessment stakeholders.

Several aspects or types of test validity need to be evaluated and evidence about each aspect documented when establishing the validity of a test. These aspects might typically including face validity, content validity, construct validity, criterion validity, concurrent validity, consequential validity and predictive validity. Tools and templates to aid the evidence collection and documentation process are therefore useful for building defensible arguments about assessment validity.
