Refers to the degree  to which  the  tool measures, what  it  is  intended  to measure. It refers  to whether the instrument or scale is quantifying what it claims  to  e.g. weight 'scale measures body weight and it  is valid; a tool which is valid  for one measure, need  not  be valid for another e.g.  in  the case of weighing scale: it is not valid  to measure  temperature.
